Beschrijving

Introductory course in Python code language, legal and practical insights in legal tech solutions (chatbots, legal search engines, smart contracts). The course also involves an introduction to the concept of legal design thinking.

Target group: Master students in Law and Law professionals. No prior knowledge is required.


Programma

In this summer course students will gain a better understanding of the concepts of legal technology and legal innovation as well as the importance of these concepts in the evolution of the legal world. They will understand the basic principles of the programming language Python and will be able to apply these principles in simple coding exercises. They will learn to code a decision tree, a mechanism that is daily used by lawyers, sometimes without being aware of it. Students will understand how a computer makes decisions and how it can make predictions by using so called explaining algorithms. That way students will also gain insights in how a computer can predict judicial decisions.

Students will also meet several legal start-ups and will understand the opportunities of legal technology and legal innovation in the business and customer services of these start-ups. One of these opportunities are the so called smart contracts. The concept of smart contracts will be analyzed and students will learn how to put the basic principles of coding a smart contract into practice. Finally, the students will gain a better understanding of the concept of legal design thinking (in which a multidisciplinary frame is used to present and approach legal problems/ services in an innovative and customer friendly way) and will apply the basic principles of legal design thinking in short exercises. The summer school ends with a Legal Tech Game. Students who successfully participate with this test will receive a certificate.
