Yes, I would like to get information about the IT LawCamp!

What we offer

A BarCamp that focuses on legal, data protection and IT topics and is the first IT LawCamp in Germany. A dynamic and flexible conference programme – an exciting day that offers interesting lectures, lively discussions of current topics and a diverse exchange of ideas at the highest level. Of course, we are planning this year’s IT LawCamp as a digital conference in line with the currently applicable hygiene regulations and distance rules and are moving the individual sessions to virtual rooms.

Who we invite

You! All company representatives who deal with IT, telecommunications, media, internet and/or data protection issues.

What we talk about

About everything that transforms our traditional legal field: Technical innovations, disruptions and other developments that require us to think outside the box.

The Story behind…

Our hosts are not only united by their enthusiasm for the IT LawCamp and their passion for the legal tech & comms sector, but also by many years of intensive cooperation: Partner Jörg-Alexander Paul trained his then associate Dr Fabian Niemann and supported him on his way to partnership. Dr. Fabian Niemann also focused on the next generation and saw forward-looking potential in his associates Dr. Miriam Ballhausen and Lennart Schüßler. Today, the three generations work hand in hand and support our tech & comms clients together.
