The _’s Section of Science & Technology Law, the premier global authority on science and technology law, will release its anticipated special double issue of The SciTech Lawyer next month. The issue charts the future of the “mobile transformation.”

The Winter/Spring 2013 special issue is a collection of 14 articles and sidebars written by some of the foremost futurists, mobile science experts and technology lawyers in the country.

“This is an issue that looks to the future,” says Lucy L. Thomson, chair of the Section of Science & Technology Law. “A new culture has been triggered by the emergence of a worldwide proliferation of mobile devices, enabled by cloud computing and creating an explosion of new networks of human minds locally, nationally and internationally. All of these developments have profound implications for the law.”

Feature stories include: “The Digital Revolution: A View of Commerce and the Law Out to 2033,” “The mHealth Revolution,” “Unmanned Aerial Systems: Mobility on the Edge,” “Mobile Social Media and Mass Mobilization,” “Rethinking the FDA’s Regulation of Mobile Medical Apps” and “Mobile Technology: Transforming the Money Transfer Market.”

The SciTech Lawyer magazine, which provides information about current developments in law, science, medicine and technology, is published quarterly and is one of the benefits received with section membership.

This is the first time in The SciTech Lawyer’s more than nine-year history that a special double issue, devoted to one topic, has been published.

The SciTech Lawyer magazine is available Jan. 15.
