Since the summer term of 2017, the Institute of Legal Informatics has been organizing a public lecture series "Data Protection Law in Practice". It is part of the master's programme "Information Technology and Law" and the certificate programme "IT Law and Legal Informatics", but is also accessible to the public.

There will also be a lecture series in the 2020/2021 winter term, starting on January 5, 2021.

State data protection commissioners, corporate data protection commissioners and other high-profile data protection experts will present an exciting mix of current topics online. On seven evenings in January and February, experts from the field will provide answers to highly relevant questions - including yours.

From a data protection perspective, 2020 was an eventful year: After two years, a practice for handling the GDPR is gradually being established, data transfer to the USA remains unclear after Schrems II, and - last but not least - the Corona pandemic has also sparked numerous discussions.

On Tuesdays from 6 to 8 p.m. all interested parties can follow current developments relating to data protection. These sessions also provide a platform for information, questions and discussion. It is possible to issue certificates of attendance that can be used as proof of participation in the continuing education program. The lecture series is part of the certificate programme "IT Law and Legal Informatics" and the master's programme "Information Technology and Law".



The lecture series will be held online via the Zoom conference system. You need to install Zoom in order to participate online. Information on how to install and use Zoom can be found on the Zoom website.
