Mobile Technologies and the Law Overview (19 November 2012) > JISC Legal | Digital Literacy - Education |

This paper considers the legal issues likely to arise from the use of mobile devices by colleges and universities. It will be relevant to staff with responsibility for planning and managing the introduction and use of mobile technologies in their institution and for lecturers, researchers and support staff using or supporting the use of mobile technologies. The paper will focus on copyright, e-safety, compliance with equality duties, and data protection, although it is recognised that other law such as freedom of information, health and safety, and employment law will also play a part.
