General information about IN SITU

Welcome  to the homepage of IN SITU – International Summer School in IT Law at Leibniz Universität Hannover –  please have a look at our programme: 

The courses are taught in English by qualified IRI-members and selected guest lecturers and offer a broad insight into Information Technology Law, a modern field of law, which is strongly influenced by European and International Law. IN SITU covers the areas of European Law, Data Protection, Electronic Commerce and Intellectual Property Law, as well as various specific topics such as Internet Governance and Cybercrime. All classes take place at the IRI’s seminar room 805 which makes the IN SITU-participants part of the daily life of the Institute. The students can also use the library of the IRI in Room 817 to revise and study.

Apart from making new friends from all over the world, getting a good introduction to IT Law and having fascinating discussions, you will receive a certificate and 10 ECTS credits.
