online course
when 10 November 2022 - 1 December 2022

duration 3 weeks

When we started Legal Tech Essentials in 2020, little did we dream that over 8,500 people would take part in our program. In 2021, we built on our experiences from the first iteration.

This year, we are back with a new program that brings exciting content to even more timezones:

For the first time, Legal Tech Essentials will be a joint effort this year between Bucerius Law School’s Center for Legal Technology and Data Science and Singapore Management University’s Centre for Computational Law at the Yong Pung How School of Law.

From mid-November to early December, we are going to host inspirational presentations from some of the world's leading Legal Technology and Operations experts Tuesdays, Wednesdays, and Thursdays at 1:30 p.m. Hamburg Time / 8:30 p.m. Singapore Time / 7:30 a.m. Eastern Time. 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.

Target group

If you're studying law or out in practice and have heard mention of "legal tech" or "legal operations" but had questions about how these terms are relevant to your own undertakings, this crash course is for you. Similarly, if you're NOT a lawyer but are tackling projects that deal with, say, risk assessment, data science or human-centered design, you might also want to have a look at the lineup of topics and speakers.

Course aim

Having had to cancel our on-campus summer programs for the second year in a row, we're putting together this online series so you can explore various topics related to Legal Technology with sessions led by a blend of practitioners and academics. Each session will include Q&A so you can get feedback on your own wonderings and continue the conversation on social media (via a LinkedIn group and on Twitter). If you enjoy what you see, you're warmly invited to join us in person for an intensive three-week course—with any luck, in November 2022. By joining the Hamburg-based course, you'll take a deep dive into the subject with multi-day interactive seminars, individual and group challenges, one-on-one coaching from our faculty, a weekend excursion to a legal innovation hub, etc.
