Scope and Objective

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. Document builder systems, online legal assistance, blockchain, smart contracts, artificial Intelligence and machine learning systems, big data analytics – in two words, technological innovation – have opened new legal scenarios, and are 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 intensive course Technological Innovation and Law (TIL) is the result of an extraordinary cooperation between judiciary, bar and academy. It aims at offering PhD students, young researchers and early career professionals a direct knowledge, from a theoretical and practical perspective, of advanced technological tools, as well as an overview of the legal implications stemming from these technological innovations. An international faculty board and legal practitioners teach the program.

The target of the school

The school is taught in English and is divided into two intertwined parts:

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;

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.
