Frankfurt Talks on Information Law

Frankfurt Talks on Information Law

The Frankfurt Talks on Information Law are aimed at academia, business and practice. They offer a forum for the exchange of ideas on current problems as well as fundamental issues from all areas of public information law.

Special areas such as data protection law, consumer information law, telecommunications law or media law are therefore dealt with. In addition, the discussions also provide a forum for legal-theoretical topics such as the legal design of the information order, questions of rationality or decision-making behavior. The event is intra- and interdisciplinary, so that the Frankfurt Talks on Information Law offer lawyers from all disciplines, but also representatives of neighboring sciences, an opportunity for open, intensive and interdisciplinary discourse.
