26. Modern technologies and platform economy: Can the law still follow?

In this session we will focus not only on the relationship between the law and technology (AI, digital currency, block chain), but we will also evaluate what it takes to push the law further, like what platforms such as Uber, Airbnb or Amazon have done. Furthermore, this session will have a look at the ethical side of technology, how law, and by extension in-house counsel, can play a vital role in this and what the role of the in-house counsel is in this transforming and volatile environment.
