The use of legal tech from the public administration
On behalf of IE Exponential Learning, we´d like to invite you to learn more about how the information revolution affects all aspects of our life, even the government and public administration, with IE Professor of Law School, Antonios Kouroutakis. In the field of public administration, the potential uses of new technologies have been for a long time only discussed in theory, and limited implementation has been recorded (in most of the cases, in a pilot phase). Throughout this session, we will show how such technologies in the best-case scenario were tested at an experimental level, and only in a few countries some small steps were taken to implement them. Moreover, it will also focus on the rapid shift that took place with the imposed lockdowns due to the Covid-19 pandemic. This situation will possibly leave its mark, not only in history books and medicine textbooks, but also in the field of administration and public law, as it spurred the implementation of the technologies of the information revolution era. This session is inspired by the Legal Tech High Impact Online Program.
