Ø  Introducing legal practitioners as teachers in academic classes. Judges, lawyers and legal

                    counsels (and all that legal practitioners which will arise as new future professional figures in the
                    new  innovative,  competitive  and  technological  society)  should  cooperate  with  academics  in

                    taking lessons.
                Ø  Escaping classes. That’s not what you think of. We would like to see students visiting the

                    future place of work (i.e. Tribunals, Public Administration’s offices, Law firms, Firms, Societies,
                    Companies, Start-ups, etc.)

                Ø  Early  traineeship/legal  practice.  Universities  should  improve  the  possibility  to  anticipate

                    legal practice and other professional experiences during their last years of academic classes (the
                    University of Milan already does do with the advocate legal practice).

             3.  Thinking about innovation, before really comprehend the role of new technologies in relation to

                 law  schools  and  professionals’  schools,  we  have  to  quest  ourselves  what  it  has  to  be  done  for
                 acknowledged and prepared for them. The first question that comes up is if technology should be

                 only part of the existing fields of law or if we need something more.
                 Probably, examining technologies issues in every field of law is not enough. It is also important to

                 introduce new courses in law and technology helping students to acquire:
                Ø  A  general  technology  knowledge  –  a  mandatory  class  concerning,  id  est  Informatics;

                    algorithms; AI; big data; block-chain;

                Ø  Specific  technical  knowledge  for  lawyers  –  Telematic  Judicial  Process;  Informatic
                    documents; digital signature, etc;

                Ø  Tools and methods to manage law problems involving new technologies – starting from
                    given cases or open problems, meeting and brainstorming on how to solve cases or regulate

                    new technology (method);
                Ø  A  general  overview  of  the  main  aspects  and  open  topics  in  the  regulation  of

                    technologies analyzed in a multi-disciplinary way – For example, now, privacy, AI, block-
                    chain, platforms.
