In the upcoming Law Society of Singapore-LAWASIA E-commerce and Communications international conference, entitled "Regulating a New World Order", legal eagles from Asia will be gathering to discuss emerging trends in the tech world.

The focus seems to be very much on data protection and social media, with the two topics covering more than half of the airtime. These also happen to very topical issues in Singapore with the new upcoming legislation, as well as the issues arising out of cyber-bullying, online vigilantes, and political blogging.

The speakers will include Prof Abu Bakar Munir from Malaysia, Tim Brookes from Australia, Pakistan's Akram Sheikh and Prof Ang Peng Hwa from Singapore's Nanyang Technological University. The conference is on May 4 and 5, 2012, at Suntec City.
