The drafting of contracts confronts companies in Industry 4.0 with new legal issues. To ensure that participation in Industrie 4.0 platforms is legally secure, a working group of the platform has developed a model contract, that will be presented by legal experts on Tuesday, 4 May. Professor Georg Borges will moderate the online seminar, which you are cordially invited to attend. Register here.

Industry 4.0 is increasingly transforming the work environment, including the formation of contracts. But is it possible for machines to form contracts? How legally secure are they? And who is responsible if machines err? On April 14, the Legal-Testbed project will be featured at the Hannover Messe. As part of the panel discussion "Legal-testbed - for the (legally) secure implementation of Industrie 4.0", Professor Georg Borges will discuss the above with project partners.

On March 18, a virtual workshop on the topic of "e-justice" shed light on the state of digital justice in German-speaking countries. Renowned experts from Switzerland, Austria and Germany reported on hurdles and successes on the way to e-justice. Professor Georg Borges moderated the exciting event, which took place as an IRI§ Spring Trimester in cooperation with the German EDV-Gerichtstag and the Research Meets Practice (ReMeP) platform.

Whether as extra-occupational qualification or additional qualification alongside your studies: the certificate programme will provide you with in-depth knowledge of digital society's most relevant legal questions and fundamental technical principles. The certificate is aimed at students of all faculties at Saarland University as well as external applicants. The courses will mainly be held online. Registration is open until March 31!

The online commentary on "IT Law", which is jointly edited by Professor Dr. Georg Borges and Dr. Marc Hilber, LL.M. attorney and partner at Oppenhoff & Partner, has been published. The work examines the multifaceted development of IT law, which is constantly undergoing change as a result of digitalization. The detailed work is intended to support lawyers in their everyday practice. The online commentary is now available from the "beck-online" database.
