Business and Digital Law is designed to provide students with a sound understanding of the core aspects of business law, both in a domestic and international perspective, particularly focusing on its intersections with new technologies and the current digitalization process.
The course offers a reasoned illustration of the different business organizations, the harmonization process initiated by the European Union, the effects on corporate organizations of regulatory competition and corporate mobility within the EU Single Market, and the dynamics and business implications of the digital transformation.
The aim is to provide students with a set of conceptual tools to understand and assess certain legal implications associated with doing business in a global and digital world.
This course is divided into two modules. The first module mainly focuses on business and corporate law. The second module mainly focuses on topics concerning the implication on business law of new technologies.
The course is designed to provide students with an understanding of business law issues in a global and digital setting and build their awareness of the different policy options across European and Anglo-American jurisdictions. The course will combine the illustration of foundational legal concepts of business and company law and recent legal developments triggered by new technologies, an analysis of how corporate law deals with the conflicts typical of corporate organizations, as well as a reasoned analysis of practical cases and policy implications.
Participants, upon successfully completing the two-module course, will become acquainted with key corporate and business rules and develop analytical tools instrumental to managing a business and making strategic decisions in an informed and effective manner.
The teaching method - which envisages in-class interaction, the analysis of case studies coming from practical experience, workshops, and group activities - is designed to promote the participants’ critical thinking, develop teamwork skills and leadership competencies.
Students must know the fundamentals of Private law.
Basic knowledge of information technology devices is recommended.
The second module (Business and Digital law II) deals with the relations between new technologies and corporate and financial law. The main subjects addressed are: corporate governance in the AI era, with particular reference to the problems concerning transparency and accountability; online participation to board meetings, general meetings, and digital proxy collection; contract models and the role of new technologies; innovative start-ups; crowdfunding; cryptocurrencies; competition challenges posed by the so-called Big Five of the information technology industry.
