Humboldt-Universität zu Berlin - Prof. Dr. Giesela Rühl

Think Tank Legal Tech

On 9 December, the 33rd meeting of the Think Tank Legal Tech of the Initiative Rechts- und Justizstandort Bayern took place. This time, Professor Rühl was the guest. She spoke about the challenges of digitalisation particularly in cross-border disputes. The focus of her remarks was the question of whether under current law (in particular under the relevant European regulations) actions can be filed and service can be effected digitally in cross-border proceedings and whether oral hearings can be conducted digitally and evidence can be taken digitally (by videoconference).
