How to execute a contract in a "Blockchain"? What role do algorithms play in personnel selection? From August 10th to 14th, the Institute for Legal Informatics organized a special week with a Summer Camp. Young researchers presented their research on current projects like "Recht-Testbed Industrie 4.0" and "examAI" and answered participants questions - online and also in-person at the Graduate Center at Saarland University.

As a replacement for the annual Summer School, which was cancelled due to corona developments, Institute Director Professor Georg Borges and Co-Director Professor Christoph Sorge had put together an exciting program. Students and graduates met with professors and experts for workshops and discussions. One of the guests was Professor Erich Schweighofer from the University of Vienna, who examined the topic "Data Protection" with the participants. The online conference "IT and Law" offered first-class lectures in this context. A "coaching" for the employees of the institute was also on the agenda. They learned the latest tricks for research on the web and received tips on effective academic work.
