Bucerius Summer Program “Legal Technology and Operations” – Hamburg, Germany
July 9 - July 27
Can we use algorithms to predict court decisions? Can we design routine contracts in a way that parties understand them without a lawyer? Can we teach machines to exercise due diligence for an M&A transaction or bankruptcy case? How can law firms use technology and alternative providers to boost their service offerings?
Join Bucerius this summer and apply legal process improvement, project management and legal design to real world scenarios. Working as part of an international team, you will discover how to get reliable insights from legal data and understand the market mechanics of the legal services industry.
This program is designed for advanced law students, recent graduates and young professionals who want to look behind the curtain of legal technology and understand how it will impact their careers and the profession as a whole. Industry leaders, prominent researchers and field innovators will share their knowledge in hands-on classes and workshops.
The program consists of six core sessions and a series of lectures and discussions that will enable participants to apply legal process improvement, project management and legal design to real world scenarios—examples will treat small, medium and large law firms, the justice system and non-profit legal service organizations. Within individual class sessions, participants will complete assignments to develop skills for their own legal careers, e.g., data collection, the application of metrics. In addition, international teams will be formed so that each participant will take part in a capstone project to improve an area of legal practice. Successful completion of the program provides 10 ECTS points (equivalent to 5 ABA credits).
