Law, Technology and Trust


Technology has changed how we work, consume, and play. Now it is changing the law. It affects the legal and compliance industries worldwide, and while many of us are waiting to see where it goes, considerable change is already taking place.

Law, Technology and Trust will address many of the core challenges we face as lawyers, businesspeople, lawmakers, and citizens. The two-day conference brings together renowned academics, legal tech entrepreneurs, lawyers, engineers, and policymakers to discuss these and other issues:

  • Predictive Analytics versus Integrity & Trust in Judiciary
  • Legal Education in Times of Technology: Experimentation & Innovation
  • Technology for & by Government
  • A Vision for the Future of Work
  • Innovative Business Models for Law Firms

On Day 2, Friday 13 September, there will be a workshop session from 15:00 - 16:00, where you may choose between the following workshops:

1. Workshop - Cybersecurity
By Luigi Bruno, & Markus Klokhøj
The workshop will feature a data breach incident simulation exercise. The simulation exercise will be interactive to provide participants with insights into the executive-level decision-making and communication strategies, which define the response to any cyber crisis.

2. Workshop – Towards a Legal Understanding of Building Information Modelling
By Ole Hansen and Sylvie Cécile Cavaleri
IT technology is increasingly applied to, among other activities, design, planning, carrying out and operation of built facilities. The opportunities for innovation and development of the relevant technologies are far from fully exploited at the current stage. Building Information Modelling is generally understood as a combination of a technology, consisting of the digital representation of the physical and functional characteristics of a facility, and a way of working implying increased knowledge-sharing and collaboration between the parties to a construction contract. The presentation will explore the main legal issues raised by the use of BIM in the construction industry.

3. Workshop – Creating a Community with Lawyers: Foe or Friend?
By Merete Nygaard and Jonas Grøn
From Silicon Valley’s IT-companies or Boston’s cluster of pharma-industry to the robotic cluster in Odense, Denmark – or the very specialized Oslo Cancer Cluster – strong communities have always been at the core of accelerating innovation, especially if we want to be in the driver’s seat.  But what does community look like, when we move into a world of law-firms and legal services?  This workshop will present examples of community-building both within Legal Tech in the Nordics and from completely different fields. Together we’ll explore what community-building can do and what it takes to make it a driving force for legal tech in the Nordics.

The conference will take place at Alf Ross Auditorium, 3rd floor, room 9A.3.01, FAculty of Law, University of Copenhagen, Njalsgade 76, DK.2300 Copenhagen S
