Admission information


Participants will learn the basics of digital administration in the context of German constitutional and administrative law and develop an understanding of the legal, political, technical and economic challenges of public administration in the digital transformation.


The public administration is still struggling with the digital transformation. There have been regulations on electronic administrative procedures for 16 years and an e-government law for 6 years. But a real modernization of administration is far more than just generating and sending a PDF form. The lecture deals with the legal, political, technical, economic and ethical aspects of a digital administration.


Participants should have attended the lectures "Fundamentals of Law".
