The FLD Experience

More than ever, law and digital technologies must collaborate for a new engineering of society; yet the training of lawyers and digital engineers does not equip them to communicate and work together.
Law and social science professionals need a digital and technological literacy that enables them to understand and build the tools that transform their profession and society as a whole.
A growing number of entrepreneurs, engineers or profiles from the social sciences or creative backgrounds are seeking additional training to enable them to integrate a legal and ethical culture into their digital projects.
