Concept Note

Intersection of law and technology has constantly engaged academicians, experts & practitioners in the legal industry. Ramifications arising out of technologies are increasing enormously, and so is increasing the burden of legal institutions to disseminate Justice. Of late, technology has penetrated into the Financial sector in the form of blockchain, and that has challenged the current state of legislation across jurisdictions, posing serious concerns in the arena of consumer welfare, financial fraud, breach of privacy, abuse by dominant players among others. Though utilization of this technology is at very nascent stage, the R&D in advanced economies has long begun and is proliferating exponentially every day. In order to address the complexities arising out of this revolution of technologies, that too in absence of any exclusive domestic legislation, AURO University, Surat is organizing the 7th AURO National Moot Court Competition, 2021 from April 2 to April 4, 2021. Through this, AURO University further aims to foster quality research, debate and aims to bring in light expert dealings on this subject.
