This course covers two related fields, innovation and international transactions law. The main focus is on ICT and IP law. After a preliminary introduction of the program and its objectives, the course will focus on law & technology pointing out the exiting relationship between society, law, market and technology development. The other sections of this course are divided into two main parts dealing with ICT and IP law. A complementary final section concerns transactions law and aims to provide a general overview of the principles of international contracts and cross-border transactions. The two main parts of the course are divided into several building blocks to address the different topics that characterize the regulatory debate and the practical implementation of ICT and IP law. In this regard, both theoretical issues and case-based problems will be addressed, giving students the opportunity to better understand the regulatory framework and its practical applications (e.g. policies, agreements, legal risk management).
