Preparing tomorrow’s legal innovators: Tech for Lawyers Bootcamp returns for another year

Monday, September 18, 2023 - 11:27

Católica Global School of Law (CGSL) starts the academic year with a new edition of the Tech for Lawyers Bootcamp, specially tailored for our LL.M. Law in a Digital Economy students. In collaboration with Instituto Superior Técnico, one of Europe's foremost technical universities, the Bootcamp will be conducted by a distinguished panel of engineering and computer science experts.

Starting today, and throughout an immersive one-week program, our LL.M. students will experience in-depth training and hands-on interaction with emerging technologies, such as artificial intelligence, blockchain, and cloud computing.

With the rapidly evolving landscape of technology and its profound impact on the legal profession, the Tech for Lawyers Bootcamp is designed to equip our students with the essential knowledge and skills required to excel in a digitalized legal economy. To achieve these goals, students will be challenged to conceptualize and present their own business ideas before a jury. This exercise not only reinforces their comprehension of digital innovation but also nurtures their entrepreneurial spirit.

We look forward to witnessing this class's remarkable growth and achievements as they embark on their LL.M. journey.

I am thrilled to welcome Católica’s LL.M. students to the fourth edition of this transformative journey. This program is not just about learning new technologies; it’s about envisioning how these technologies can reshape the legal landscape. It’s about daring to dream and having the courage to turn those dreams into reality. I encourage students to make the most of this week - ask questions, think big, and get ready to lead technological change in the legal profession.
