Digitalisation transcends everything in our communication: ‘who’, ‘what’, ‘how, ‘when’ has changed – just like the rules deciding on the ‘who’, ‘what’, ‘how and ‘when’. These changes due to ongoing processes of digitalisation and globalisation are fundamental but they are not stable, which makes them difficult to categorize and understand. Nation states, industries, professions, media and their economical, ethical and legal rules are challenged and transformed by these developments that come with breath-taking opportunities for those who see them early enough.

We provide the tools and the skills to get the necessary understanding of what’s going on. Will you steer such innovation processes in the future? This programme offers an intense, international, multidisciplinary room for reflection, high-level lectures, hands-on digital exercise in one of the world’s most beautiful cities. Spend a month on transformation in communication and law with senior industry representatives and leading academics and learn about best practices that will overcome the changes all of us are faced with.

The intertwining of Law and Communication

Univ.-Prof. Dr. Nikolaus Forgó

„Communication without Law is 'anything goes'. Law without Communication is 'nobody cares'. This course is for people who care and who want to join the regulatory avantgarde of the this century's 'roaring twenties'.“

Change never ends

Hon. Prof. Dr. Andy Kaltenbrunner

"We need best analysts, lecturers, practicioners at the interfaces of digital innovation, regulation and law - to keep up with discussion and developments. This is what our program ComLaw in Vienna offers."
