EUROPEAN IT LAW BY DESIGN

A Jean Monnet Module to explore the relationship between law and technology in a new and interdisciplinary way

The course will introduce Master's students to the foundations of European Information and Technology (IT) Law, by focusing on two sectors at the centre of the EU policy agenda: data protection and artificial intelligence. The Module is a tailor-made course, which integrates a “Legal Design” (LD) approach into teaching.

LD is an innovative and interdisciplinary field of research and didactics, based on active learning and problem-solving. Students will be called to collaboratively work on practical cases and to develop a project in the field of IT Law. The course is structured in 3 parts: 1) Introduction to Legal Design; 2) Key Areas in European IT Law (data protection and artificial intelligence); 3) Legal Design in Action.
