Legal Design Roundtable 2021 | BOOKS IN CONVERSATION

25 May 2021 (14-17 CEST)

FULL PROGRAM AND REGISTRATION FORM - Free entrance but online registration required

This year the roundtable will host a “conversation among books” on law and design which are expected to be published in 2021.

By engaging with the discussants and the public, the roundtable aims to acknowledge: (1) What has been done so far by the “law and design” movement; (2) What are the foundations of such a movement; (3) What are the steps to continue our work in this area.

Scientific coordinators: Dr. Rossana Ducato (University of Aberdeen and UCLouvain) and Prof. Alain Strowel (UCLouvain, Université Saint-Louis Bruxelles, IP Law Munich Centre). Technical and organisational support: Quentin Fontaine (UCLouvain)

The Legal Design Roundtable is an event promoted within the Jean Monnet Module “European IT Law by Design”, co-funded by the Erasmus+ Program of the European Union.
