Context: the digital transformation

The digital transformation of the economy, society and the public space is accelerating. Technologies based on massive data processing and AI are increasingly available.

As a result, lawyers and other professionals must now master new digital tools.  They must also stay up to date with legal developments related to the innovation and deployment of these tools.
Moreover, digital technology is at the heart of European policies and programs. Legislative initiatives are multiplying: the Digital Markets Act, the Digital Services Act, the AI Act, the Data Act, and the very recent AI Liability Directive are just a few examples.

Thus, the protection of innovations, the control or sharing of data, cybersecurity, the regulation of digital platforms, the responsibility for the use of artificial intelligence systems, etc. have been the subject of a multitude of legislative and jurisprudential developments over the last few years (especially at the European level) that make an update of knowledge welcome.

Lawyers and other professionals in R&D, marketing or communication, must today be aware of the new rules and good practices that will impact their jobs. This is what our Certificate offers to help with.
