The inaugural meeting of the Society for Computers and Law in Singapore takes place on 14 October. Its title is Negotiation and litigation of technology contracts: some common challenges.
The Chair was known to us as Mr Justice Ramsey of the High Court of England and Wales. He is now the Honourable Justice Vivian Ramsey, International Judge of the Singapore International Commercial Court, one of the examples of judicial talent which has left us in favour of what are presumably more attractive judicial climes. (The DIFC in Dubai is another international court built on England and Wales principles but created from scratch with international commerce in mind and free of the depressingly awful state of the UK courts).
Speakers include Alex Charlton QC and Matthew Lavy, both of 4 Pump Court, the first barristers known to me, many years ago, to seize the opportunities which technology offers to the bar.
The SCL aims to start holding regular events in Singapore with a view to expanding its Asian membership base.
There is more information here about the 14 October event, including instructions for reserving a place.
