Professional demands made on lawyers are changing rapidly. Nowadays, an increasing number of lawyers are working for companies, such as in the IT sector, rather than in law offices. This raises the question: what challenges are lawyers facing now and in the future in terms of increasingly ubiquitous technological progress and digitalisation?
To find this out, a group of 26 EBS students organised the fourth EBS Law Congress on October 26 and 27. Approximately 270 guests attended presentations and panel discussions in the overall context of “The law of new technologies”. The speakers came from companies such as SAP and Google, as well representatives from Hesse’s Central Agency for Combatting Cybercrime.
In the interview, student organisers Zoe Kuhzarani and Tobias Schwalm talk about the one-year preparation period and their personal highlights.
