How do Social Media, Big Data and digital tracking change the definition of privacy? The Research Training Group 1681 "Privacy" of the University of Passau - funded by the German Research Foundation (DFG) - wil finance early career researchers working on fields related to privacy and digitalisation.
Passau's Chair of Public Law, Media Law and Information Law is developing an online lecture on the Federal Lawyers' Act and related laws and regulations governing the legal profession. This lecture will be offered online as part of the Virtuelle Hochschule Bayern (vhb) course offering.
From copyright cases to liability issues and informational self-presentation: the online lecture 'Convergent Media Law' imparts valuable knowledge to students of Media and Communication, Computer Science and Governance and Public Policy.
Proactive information instead of lengthy ‘Terms and Conditions': Passau's Chair of Public Law, Media Law and Information Law develops texts, sample documents and templates that can be used to promote an understanding of the issues involved in data protection and privacy.
The law in turbulent times: In June 2015, Passau's Chair of Public Law, Media Law and Information Law organised a conference taking a new view on resilience, where the participating academics applied the concept to a legal context, asking questions such as: Which circumstances lead to a collapse of law and the legal system?
In the language of psychology, the term ‘resilience' is used to describe an individual's mental strength. The volume ‘Resilience of the Law' transfers this concept to a legal context: How do laws react to crises and exceptional situations - such as the 2013 flood in Passau?
The Chair of Public Law, Media Law and Information Law at the Faculty of Law of the University of Passau has established a Law Clinic: Passau’s law students offer legal advice to regional startup-companies and citizens.
Passau's Law Clinic promotes academic exchange within the worldwide iLINK network. Through international exchange within the iLINK network, the student legal advice group hopes to foster academic exchange, to gain didactic skills and gain international contacts.
