Innovating Legal Studies and Practice (ILSP) - February 6-10, 2017
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. In addition, technology affects law itself and its assumptions. Even theoretical legal studies are expected to reconsider the way the law is conceived and conceptualized in its current transnational and global status.
The Department of Law of the University of Pavia, the European Center for Law, Science and New Technologies (ECLT) and the Collegio Ghislieri, present the 2017 edition of the course Innovating Legal Studies and Practice (ILSP).
Aim of the course is to answer one of the fundamental needs of contemporary legal environment related to the technological education of people working in that field. Gaining a deeper awareness and knowledge of how new technologies modified the structure and practice of law is an essential feature both for future legal professionals and for people who will more broadly deal with the legal realm.
The method upon which ILSP Winter School relies is just as innovative as its aim. Stemming from an extraordinary synergic cooperation among judiciary, bar and academy, the program of the Winter School offers:
- A theoretical part, where an international faculty board introduces the students to themes such as technology and law, legal informatics, legal interoperability, transnational law;
- A technological part, which focuses on practice. Each student, under the supervision of experts, lawyers and judges, will work and familiarize himself with the various innovative platforms that are already in use in the courtroom (Consolle) and law firms. In addition, they will work on the platform ALST and will experiment original solutions for legal multilingualism. In the last two days they will take part to a Hackathon: an event in which they are called to collaborate intensively in order to develop creative solutions.
The Winter School is organized in cooperation with the Institute for Advanced Study of Pavia (IUSS), the Centre for Health Technologies (UNIPV) and the European Law Students Association (ELSA).
Directors: Prof. Paolo Renon (Department of Law, UNIPV), Prof. Amedeo Santosuosso (ECLT, UNIPV).
