Nordic Conference on Law and Information Technology 2022

Welcome to the 37th Nordic Conference on Law & Information Technology

"Humans, data and law: tectonic plates in motion"

Over recent times, the European regulatory landscape has experienced several quakes with proposals such as the Digital Services Act, Digital Market Act, Data Governance Act, Data Act, Artificial Intelligence Act as well as other soft-law initiatives, attempting to adjust to the fast-paced developments in our digital society, many of which relate to challenges caused by scale and automation.

Time to take a step back and take a look: how are the tectonic plates of Law and Information Technology moving in the 2020s? What are the regulatory approaches? What is their interplay, what are common issues, what are common solutions? What is a Nordic perspective? And also: how should our legal education reflect the new technological world? 

 

  

We look forward to discuss these issues with you and welcome you to Copenhagen. Sign-up here
