News and Events

The international and interdisciplinary Summer School for IT Law and Legal Informatics is held annually at Saarland University in Saarbrücken. It is aimed at young researchers and practitioners keen to discuss current topics in IT Law and Legal Informatics in an international forum. Students are usually admitted subject to special interest and availability of places.

After careful consideration, the Summer School Administration has decided to call off the Summer School 2024 program. We are now focusing on the Summer School 2025 programme! As always, we aim to offer our guests a great experience, enriching discussions and world-class speakers on the latest developments in IT law. Our team is already preparing for next year, and we look forward to hosting an enriching and engaging Summer School next year. Please stay tuned to our website for future updates and announcements. A detailed program for the Saarland University Summer School on IT Law and Legal Informatics will soon be available at www.summerschool-itlaw.org.

Flight delays, unjustified rent increases or fraudulent diesel engines: although the number of lawsuits before German civil courts has slightly decreased, the courts and the judges suffer under an overload of monotonous legal disputes. In an international and interdisciplinary workshop at the Institute for Legal Informatics on 9 August 2023, current issues surrounding the use of AI systems in the legal field will be examined by experts from the judiciary, the legal tech industry and academia. The workshop is part of the “Explainable Intelligent Systems” project funded by the Volkswagen Foundations.

On Wednesday, February 8, from 1 p.m. to 4.30 p.m., the Institute of Legal Informatics will host a conference together with Hitotsubashi University, Tokyo, Japan. The international event focusses the digitalization of administration in Germany and Japan. As speakers, Professor Dr. Georg Borges has invited the following renowned experts: Professor Mayu Terada from Hitotsubashi University, Tokyo, Professor Takehiro Ohya from Keio University, Tokyo, and Dr. Christian Geminn from the University of Kassel. Informations
