Open Research Network JDR/YDL

The network Junges Digitales Recht/Young Digital Law has been created as an open research network and is addressing researchers on all career levels, from pre- to post-doctoral stage until completion of a ‘Habilitation’. The questions of today’s society are multidimensional and complex. Young Digital Law therefore wants to foster collaborative legal scholarship that does not consider future technologies and law in isolation from the social conditions that shape them. The research network aims to lay the foundations for fruitful exchange between the coming generation of scholars of digital law, within the legal discipline and beyond.

The inaugural conference of the research network Young Digital Law, YDL2021, was hosted by University of Göttingen in July 2021. YDL2022, the second conference of its kind, was organized by the Center for Law and Legal Education in Digital Transformation at the University of Hamburg (ZeRdiT) in cooperation with the Leibniz Institute for Media Research | Hans-Bredow-Institut (HBI) in July 2022. 

It is our pleasure to now be organizing the 3rd conference of the research network Young Digital Law YDL2023 at the University of Vienna. The conference will be jointly hosted by the Department of Innovation and Digitalisation in Law and the Research Platform Governance of Digital Practices in cooperation with the Research Group Security and Privacy.
