The digital economy and artificial intelligence are disrupting traditional legal concepts and posing severe challenges to legal professionals. Participants in this course will be educated on problematic aspects connected to the so-called “digital revolution”.

Target group

Bocconi Summer School offers a selective three-week study program open to motivated international students (students from non-Italian universities) enrolled in a Bachelor Program, preferably in their third-to-last, second-to-last or last year of undergraduate studies.

Course aim

The course will focus on three main areas that are currently subject to intense investigation within the EU. First, it will provide insight on the changing role of personal and non-personal data in the data economy and the responses of the law with respect to the EU regulations on transparency and liability. Second, it will devote attention to issues of liability associated with digital products: the Internet of Things, self-driving vehicles and 3D-printing. Its final part will address the evolutionary paradigms of blockchain technologies, smart contracts and virtual currencies as well as their impact on legal systems. Students will be asked to tackle real-life scenarios and will meet companies that perform their activities in fields using new technologies.
