Law and technology

The Law and Technology line explores the relationships between the legal system and new technologies in the contemporary scenario, with an emphasis on complex legal problems, whose solution is challenging due to the lack of appropriate regulations, of consolidated jurisprudence, and even of academic production based on the knowledge of the concrete reality, and properly grounded on theory. See below the research projects under the Law and Technology line.
