Technology is changing the practice of law and the meaning of being a lawyer today. Legal practitioners and judges already use advanced technological tools in their everyday activity and innovative and powerful technologies are being developed at a great pace. Technological innovation has opened new legal scenarios, and is posing profound theoretical challenges. Consequently, legal studies are expected to reconsider the way the law is conceived and conceptualized in its current transnational and global status.
The European Center for Law, Science and New Technologies (ECLT), the Department of Law of the University of Pavia, the Collegio Ghislieri, and the University School for Advanced Studies IUSS Pavia present the course Technological Innovation and Law (TIL 2019).
The course offers the opportunity to gain insights on how the legal environment is changing, as well as to explore new possibilities of technological applications to legal professions.
Stemming from an extraordinary synergic cooperation among judiciary, bar and academy, the course offers:
- a theoretical part, taught by an international faculty board and meant to provide participants with an overview of core topics such as technology and law, computation and law, legal informatics, transnational law and more;
- a technological practical part, where participants will become familiar with innovative software tools already used in courtrooms and law firms. Topics include virtual law practice, automated document assembly, technology assisted document review, and electronic legal work. A dedicated session offers practical advice on how to manage with social media communication.
The course is organized in cooperation with the Centre for Health Technologies (UNIPV) and the European Law Students Association (ELSA).
Directors: Prof. Amedeo Santosuosso (ECLT, UNIPV), Prof.sa Giulia Rossolillo (Department of Law, UNIPV)
Deadline for registration: November 16th 2018. EXTENDED DEADLINE NOVEMBER 25th 2018. THE INTERVIEWS WILL TAKE PLACE ON NOVEMBER 29th 2018 from 12 a.m. (personal communication will follow).
