Deep Dive into Blockchain - Linking Economics, Technology and Law
For a full understanding of Blockchain, with all its implications and potential for application in practice, it is absolutely crucial to look at it from a multidisciplinary perspective. In this Summer School, students will understand the three key pillars of blockchain systems, namely the technology, the economics and the legal aspects behind it. Building on this, they will then explore other fields of application, such as forensics and data analytics. This program is highly interactive, with hands-on practice sessions incorporating the most advanced and promising blockchain-based platforms.

International Sports Law: Legal Challenges in the Fight Against Doping (new!)

This Summer School offers unique insights into the legal context in which international sports organizations currently operate as well as into the limits to their autonomy in designing internal procedures.

Specific issues that will be addressed include the limits to disciplinary and investigative autonomy of sports organizations in internal disciplinary proceedings, e.g. relating to doping, and the role and limits of adjudication by arbitral tribunals and internal bodies of such organizations in general.
