Courts of the Future – The Future of Courts

Between Automated Justice and Platform Jurisprudence 

Online Workshop Series

convened by Wolfgang Schulz • Matthias C. Kettemann • Giovanni De Gregorio 

Technology creates societal fractures. Courts have traditionally been responsible to apply the law to fill fractures, ease normative tensions, develop social mores. But courts are uneasy rulers in times of technological change, even as platforms seek to recreate private quasi-courts. This workshop series takes a deep dive into the role of technology, including automated decision-making, in and in front of courts, of platform courts, and of the use of courts to effect social changes. 

The four noon events featuring a keynote speaker and one or more discussants run from April to July 2021 and are organized by the Leibniz Institute for Media Research | Hans-Bredow- Institut (HBI) and its Private Ordering Observatory (PrObs), the Baffi Carefin Center at Bocconi University and the Humboldt Institute for Internet and Society (HIIG).
