Bucerius Summer Programmes are designed for advanced law students, recent graduates, and young professionals wishing to acquire in-depth knowledge in the fields of legal technology and operations, international intellectual property transactions, and international business law.
By joining one of the intensive three-week courses, you will have an opportunity to gain valuable intercultural communication skills by working in small groups with students from different legal backgrounds.
Explore the future of law and legal services and experience the academic rigor of Germany's top law school while working closely with innovators from academia, law firms, and legal departments across the globe!
- Can we use algorithms to predict court decisions?
- Can we design routine contracts so that parties understand them without a lawyer?
- Can we teach machines to exercise due diligence?
- How can law firms use technology and alternative providers to boost their service offerings?
If questions like these are of interest to you, the Bucerius Summer Programme in Legal Technology and Operations will be right up your alley.
Learn to distinguish relevant information from hype: taking part in this programme will enable you to both understand why legal technology matters and join the current conversation between lawyers and technologists—at the end of your time in Hamburg, you will be able to use technology to tackle complexity and properly assess risk in a legal context.
Practice-oriented summer short courses have been offered on the Bucerius campus since 2008 and have focused on subjects such as International IP Transactions, International Business Law, and Mediation.
All programmes base their curricula on an interactive classroom experience, including small group discussions with lecturers and fellow participants. You will explore material from a comparative perspective and gain new insight into topics by exploring them with peers from diverse cultural backgrounds who represent a range of legal systems.
Participants in the upcoming programme are slated to take part in a two-day excursion to Frankfurt am Main. In addition to being the Eurozone's financial capital, the city is also home to offices for most large international laws firms. This study trip enables you to explore a legal innovation hub and meet with members of a leading alternative legal services provider during an intensive workshop. By taking part, you will gain a unique opportunity to get in touch with fellow legal innovators and familiarise yourself with the European legal innovation scene.
