Seminar Law and Computer Science

This interdisciplinary seminar is offered jointly by the Institute for Civil Law and the Institute of Computer Science. Students of computer science and law will work closely together on questions that arise from tensions between the progressing digitalization of the world and the existing law. Participants will work in interdisciplinary groups, and each group addresses one specific problem from a legal perspective and from a technical perspective. The goal is to provide assessments and to develop solutions for the problem from both perspectives.

The concrete topic will be decided later; past editions have focused on “Distributed Trust and Blockchain” or on “Distributed Trust in Finance” for example. More information will be provided here towards the end of 2022.
