On the way to the digital law firm
The current issue of Anwaltsrevue features an article by Daniel Hürlimann (Laux Lawyers) and Martin Steiger (Steiger Legal) entitled “On the way to the digital law firm - despite professional secrecy and data protection”. The authors first provide an overview of data protection, attorneys' and criminal law. They then use four concrete examples to show that lawyers are also allowed to use cloud services.
New book: Anonymization of judgments
A few days ago, the book on the anonymization of judgments edited by Daniel Huerlimann and Daniel Kettiger was published. The book chapters examine, among other things, what exactly is meant by anonymization, how judgments are anonymized, and how much effort is required to do so. The book, published by Helbing Lichtenhahn Verlag, is available as a freely accessible PDF file (open access) and also in print.
The publication of judgments belongs in the E-Justice Act
In the December issue of the Richterzeitung, an article by Daniel Hürlimann, Christian Laux and three other authors was published suggesting that the publication of judgments should be included in the E-Justice Act. The E-Justice Act is in the consultation phase until mid-February. Unfortunately, the Federal Council has missed the opportunity to include the publication of judgments in the law. It is to be hoped that this will change by the draft stage. Otherwise, the topic would still have to be included in the law as a result of the parliamentary deliberations.
