On September 7, Professor Dr. Georg Borges was a guest of the ReMeP 2021 - Research Meets Practice - Legal Informatics Conference. The main topics of the hybrid event were "Computational Law" and "Legal Knowledge Graphs". From September 5 to 7, high-profile speakers discussed the use of artificial intelligence in court and the use of automated compliance tools and their potential application in practice throughout various workshops, presentations and panel discussions.

Alongside Professor Adam Wyner, Joanna Sidhu and other experts, Professor Borges took part in the roundtable on the topic of "Low-Code/No-Code in Practice" chaired by Professor Peter Wahlgren. The speakers addressed the question of whether "no code" or "low code" can be used to involve lawyers in application development. Legal informatics in itself is not new, yet hurdles with regard to whether and how the two disciplines of law and computer science can be combined exist in practice.

Throughout his teaching career, Professor Borges has found that computer scientists often have an intuition for law, as opposed to to lawyers who tend to have a strict "aversion" to numbers and are generally not too keen on computer science. 

One of the topics discussed was whether an understanding of both disciplines is desirable at all. The general consensus was that it is important to understand the concepts of each discipline, but that it is not essential to a fruitful collaboration to know what a software engineer does in great detail.

Each year, the international ReMeP conference connects researchers, who present their projects, with companies that are looking for solutions to tasks that are specific to digitalization. The researchers can get first-hand feedback and apply it to their projects. Companies, on the other hand, have the opportunity to influence the further development of an informatics solution and suggest improvements that will make the application even more valuable for their business.
