This summer school, a world first, addresses the legal opportunities and challenges created by blockchain for competition law, intellectual property, and privacy law.

It is designed for legal experts, including, lawyers, practitioners, master and Ph.D. students (enrolled in a law degree), governmental agencies’ case handlers, academics, officials and representatives, policy officers, judges, and anyone interested in understanding how blockchain will challenge our societies as well as our legal systems.

Space Law & Artificial Intelligence Summer School

Every year in July, ALTI offers a 1 week intensive Summer School, an internationally unique learning experience exploring the synergy ‘space law – artificial intelligence’. 

Artificial intelligence challenges our status quo due to its multiple benefits but also due to the risks posed by an active implementation of this advanced technology in our daily lives.

The course focuses on real life applications of AI in both digital and physical worlds, from Earth to Space.

On Earth we will analyze the legal implications of integrating AI in our societies, with a deep dive in technical and legal aspects of various AI systems (autonomous vehicles, autonomous weapons, AI used in healthcare, in legal services, in the public sector and in the context of criminal proceedings).

Further, we will travel to Space and we will get acquainted with recent trends, such as NewSpace, while we seek to identify how Space Law applies in the era of advanced autonomous AI.
