Hi! Thanks for reading the monthly Digital Legal Lab newsletter, where we round up the latest news & views from our cross-university research collaboration on digital legal studies. For more information, updates and events, please visit our website.
What's new at the Digital Legal Lab
We are excited to announce that the application process for the “Data, personalization, and the law 2023” winter school is now open and runs until August 25th, 2023!
The winter school will be dedicated to technological and regulatory developments and interdisciplinary debates in relation to data and personalisation. The winter school is aimed at early career researchers – PhD students and post-doctoral researchers – active in these topics, from diverse disciplinary and geographical backgrounds. There will be no participation fee and we also plan to cover participants’ accommodation.
The preliminary program for the Digital Legal Talks 2023 is finally out! Digital Legal Talks 2023 will be an all-day event packed with exciting talks and sessions on law & digital technologies, with researchers from within and outside the Digital Legal Lab sharing their work, perspectives and ideas on the digitalization of society.
The conference will be held fully in-person this year, at De Zalen van Zeven (Boothstraat) in Utrecht. Participation is free of charge, but please keep in mind that you do have to register beforehand via Oxford Abstracts because seats are limited!
We are excited to announce that we have a new project coming up, namely the Research Conversations Podcast! In this podcast, several members of the Digital Legal Lab will talk about their research, in an accessible way for everyone, no matter your field of expertise.
This will be a great opportunity to learn more about digital legal topics such as AI, intellectual property, and much more! Stay tuned for the first few episodes, which are coming very soon!
Digital Legal Lab member Friso Bostoen got his book “Abuse of platform power” published by Concurrences! This book presents an in-depth study of the abuse of dominance in the platform economy.
We would like to congratulate him, and invite you to read it by clicking on the link below.
Two Digital Legal Lab members, Naomi Appelman and Ronan Fahy, had their article, ‘Using Terms and Conditions to apply Fundamental Rights to Content Moderation’, published in the German Law Journal!
In this article, they critically examine the topic of enforceability of fundamental rights via Terms & Conditions through the prism of Article 14 Digital Services Act. They research whether this provision requires platforms to apply EU fundamental rights law and to what extent this may curb the power of Big Tech over online speech.
We would like to congratulate them, and invite you to read their article by clicking on the button down below.
