It is my pleasure to be the guest editor of this special editon of EJLT. I present a collecton of papers building on presentatons given at the Britsh and Irish Law, Educaton and Technology Associaton conference at the University of Aberdeen in 2018. This annual event is a key milestone in the calendars (intellectual and social) of law, technology and educaton scholars across the globe. As I write this brief editorial, I look forward to us all gathering again at Queen’s University Belfast in 2019. Other papers building on the Aberdeen conference were published in the Internatonal Review of Law, Computers and Technology, and readers are highly recommended to enjoy that collecton too.
