About the course

The development of legal technologies has been fast, powerful and critically disruptive in a typically traditional sector. Rapid technological innovation has influenced both long-established businesses and the legal status quo with the emergence of new business models such as fintechs and regtechs.



  • Comprehend the basic nomenclature surrounding legal technology and innovation in the financial sector.


  • Evaluate the impact of legal and ethical challenges that arise with the use of big data.


  • Differentiate key digital technologies in the legal sector: cloud, blockchain, analytics, AI, etc.


  • Discover the opportunities and obstacles that arise when developing and using new technologies.


This 5-week virtual experience will immerse participants in the changing legal and financial sectors. You'll discover new innovations and analyze how these technologies are driving efficiencies while raising questions concerning data ownership and IP. What's more, you'll look at practical applications of disruptive tech in the legal and financial sectors, and acquire new digital competences.


This first module introduces participants to legal innovation and legal technologies in all sectors: the private sector (in-house and in law firms), public sector (administration and judiciary), and in legal education, providing contemporary examples of successful legal technology applications, products and businesses.


Module 2 focuses on the legal implications of innovation in the legal and financial sectors. It examines issues of data ownership, intellectual property, copyright (software licensing specifically) and patents, as well as trade secrets and competition law.


Module 3 focuses on relevant fields that are disrupted by new technologies in the legal and financial sectors, starting with digital identity and signatures. Topics covered include business data, data lifecycles, accessing and processing data, big data, and data protection and security, placing emphasis on GDPR legislation.


Module 4 focuses on disruptive technologies for the financial sector and discusses deposits, lending and capital raising. It explores innovations in payments, banking and investment (including AI and current and potential future roles of robots in finance), as well as the crossroads of new technologies and financial regulation: the evolution of regtech and experimentation with regulatory sandboxes. This module analyzes and defines the basic features of fintech as an emerging field.


The program finishes with Module 5, which focuses on cultivating participants’ digital competences: computational thinking and coding, design thinking and data visualization. It further explores machine learning and AI, blockchain, smart contracts and virtual currencies.
