Here at Bucerius Law School, a leading law school in Germany, we have offered an annual Summer Program in Legal Technology and Operations since 2018. When the COVID-19 pandemic made it impossible to host an in-person Summer Program this year, we decided not to give up.
With generous support from our sponsor Baker McKenzie we created Bucerius Legal Technology Essentials—a free online educational experience with many of the lecturers that would normally be on our campus.
From late June to early August, we are going to host inspirational presentations from some of the world's leading legal technology and operations experts on weekdays at 7:00 p.m. CEST. We promise 60–90 minutes of insights and Q&A.
Be sure to sign-up in time to receive updates on topics, lecturers and more.
Laying the groundwork for more advanced subjects, these lectures will introduce you to Legal Technology and Legal Innovation. You’ll get a deeper introduction to data- and rules-based approaches and learn about the interconnectedness of legal innovation and the start-up landscape.
We highlight some of the bravest entrepreneurs in legal innovation. They share their story, tell us what made them successful and present how their current ventures make the legal world better. This presents an opportunity to learn about both legal innovation and entrepreneurship.
Legal Operations originated in legal departments but has made its way into law firms and the administration. Our experts share their experience in using technology to advance the understanding of their work, transform their department and create value for their organizations.
Quantitative and computational methods are on the rise in legal academia. Some scholars, who are at the forefront of their fields, will share their latest results and explain their impact on the legal world of tomorrow. The sessions require no prior knowledge but some solid curiosity.
Sometimes it requires outstanding minds to see what everyone else has seen but think what others have not. In this category we present innovative ways of seeing the law and its institutions. This new perspective hopefully inspires you to change the world around you.
Just use the sign-up form at the bottom of the page.
You can sign up for individual lectures. They will be made available via Zoom Webinar.
This is not an academic program. We do not give out degrees or certificates for participation in Bucerius Legal Technology Essentials 2020.
No. You can pick and choose. We will upload a schedule here, email you a weekly schedule update and you will get a reminder 1 hour before each lecture.
We will not make recordings of the sessions widely available.
Of course, this is not the end to our on-campus program. Normal service will resume in 2021. In the meantime, check out this video and our official program website.
