Among the various and major changes that are commonly termed ‘’revolutions‘’ and which, over millennia, have impacted human communities both individually and collectively, the so-called digital revolution is certainly the most recent and the one with the most significant impact. Such a statement may be illustrated by a reference to computer sciences in general, Internet, wireless communication technologies, artificial intelligence, autonomization and connected devices… amongst others. This revolution challenges almost all the existing legal categories and principles. It generates new legal issues and makes the ancient ones even more complex. To a certain extent, it renders necessary a renewed approach of classical solutions and expresses the need for new proposals to solve problems at stake intelligently.

Academics and experts from different European Universities and countries will convey their views on the impact of new technologies on the international, european and domestic legal landscapes, from various angles (International Law, Comparative Law, European Law, Law of Obligations, Business Law, Administrative Law, Intellectual Property…).
The Summer School is a unique opportunity to join a group of highly-qualified international speakers, professionals, academics and students around very actual topics.
