“For Sebastian Nagl, working with computers is an issue close to his heart.” In my youth in the mountains around Berchtesgaden, I was a gambler – and during law school at LMU, I taught myself programming on the side – as a technical balance to my law studies, so to speak. Today, he has his first state exam in his pocket and attests to “all the characteristics of a classic nerd: I play magic, dungeons and dragons and I also program in my free time. The number of participants is limited to 30 to create an interactive learning atmosphere. We invite recent PhD students and postdocs from the fields of computer science, law and related fields. To apply, please send an email to with the following documents: In order to prepare less tech-savvy students for the changing legal market, his workshop was divided into two parts. “First, a block seminar was designed to give students an idea of programming, for example with Python or JavaScript, and thus prepare them for the second module: our `Legal Tech Hackathon`.” Specific technical focus areas currently include: Subscribe and stay up to date with the latest legal news, information and events. However, things are changing, not least thanks to a new generation of young researchers and legal and IT professionals. The mission of the 2nd Munich LegalTech Summer School is to bring together excellent young scientists from both disciplines to promote interdisciplinary exchanges. With lectures by world-class experts, collaborative hands-on lab sessions and panel discussions, we aim to train the next generation of LegalTech researchers. We want to shed light on the different research sub-fields from a legal and computational perspective with lectures on the topics of natural legal language processing, prediction of court case outcomes, legal data science and legal reasoning. The digital revolution has democratized many aspects of our lives.

Access to knowledge is no longer limited to those who can afford 32 volumes of the Encyclopædia Britannica or have access to university libraries, but is accessible to anyone with access to the Internet. Access to the visual arts, but also to formerly expensive services such as translation, has been opened up to new layers of citizens through digitisation. For a long time, the legal sector has probably been one of the biggest resistances to digitization efforts and still struggles in some ways to catch up with other industries. Machine contracts, websites for passenger complaints and computers that check files – digitization is also progressing in the jurisdiction and “Legal Tech” is taking on more and more tasks. During an innovative workshop at LMU, future lawyers got an insight into programming and possible applications. Our legal technology offering is recognized in the market. We are listed in the online directory – – as a Legal-Tech 2020 law firm. The directory lists law firms that offer reliable legal technology solutions for businesses. The field of “legal tech” is still developing in Germany, says Sebastian Nagl, who himself currently works as a law clerk at the Higher Regional Court of Munich and as a “legal engineer” in a law firm. “While information technology law has long been highly relevant due to the advancement of e-commerce and social platforms, legal technology – a modern word for legal computing – arrived here relatively late. The basic idea: how can I solve or at least optimize a legal problem through technical applications? For example: “In the past, when a law firm received a major mandate, lawyers would first spend months combing through files for legally relevant contexts. Today, the computer does it in minutes.

Reminders, fines and collection letters, for example, are “all already outside the lawyer`s sphere of activity” and have been left to legal technology companies. Germany is located in the heart of Europe with a strong industrial heritage and one of the strongest economies and financial centers in the world.
