Ireland: The Society For Computers And Law Irish Group Launches At Matheson Offices
Last Updated: 2 June 2014

Pictured at the launch of The Society for Computers and Law (SCL) Irish group at Matheson's offices in Dublin's docklands are John O'Connor, Matheson; Denise Farnsworth, Microsoft and Nick Haworth, AIB plc.

The SCL has a global membership of legal professionals working on areas including technology, outsourcing and cloud contracts, data protection and e-commerce. Its mission is to maintain and expand a community of IT lawyers to provide thought leadership, best practice, education and standards in these areas.

The Irish group's newly-appointed chair, John O'Connor of Matheson, said, "The launch of an Irish branch is very timely and yet another acknowledgement of Ireland's position as a leading international technology hub. The principal challenge facing technology lawyers is probably the volume of novel issues that need to be considered – often applying laws that were written for a world where technology was not ubiquitous and the internet did not exist. We need an organisation such as the SCL to help bring the most relevant know-how and data together."

John is joined on the Committee by representatives from Facebook, Microsoft and AIB plc.
