Proud of building Laws for your Digital Society

MA in Information Technology Law

The impact of IT is almost inescapable across most areas of our lives and it is no surprise that a wide range of sectoral legislation is affected, too. Besides understanding the working principles of information systems and their interoperability, we need to find a shared understanding between IT experts and lawyers - this is where I come in. 

Throughout my professional life I have been the bridge-builder between two sides that are all-too often diametrically opposed. Let's take an example: Depending on who you ask, data protection is stifling progress, a critical tool to protect citizens from greater powers, or anything in between. As a lawyer with a soft spot for technology, I am very adept at solving questions like these every day. And we will find an elegant legal solution for the challenges of your country, too.
