Legal Innovation: Cloud solutions for law firms
In his recent video contribution to the LegalInnovation conference, Christian Laux outlines why law firms can use cloud solutions and what documentation the law firm should prepare (reports on technical and organizational measures including legal opinions). The law firm should choose solutions that do not result in plain-text access to client information during normal operations. The legal framework applicable to lawyers must always strictly be adhered to.
Contribution by Laux Lawyers on the E-Justice Act quoted in the NZZ
The NZZ of March 3, 2021 published an article on the E-Justice Act (Federal Act on the Platform for Electronic Communication in the Judiciary). The article referred to the contribution “Die Urteilspublikation gehört ins E-Justice-Gesetzt” by Daniel Hürlimann, Christian Laux and three other co-authors. The NZZ article provides a good overview of the controversial points of the E-Justice Act. The consultation period expired by end of February and it is expected that the Federal Council will dispatch the draft bill soon.
Lex Laux: Feelings and IT – it works after all
In his current Lex Laux column, Christian Laux takes an almost philosophical approach to the connection between IT and feelings. Feelings that, for example, sometimes boil up in connection with the current E-ID debate, which is not only helpful for the factual analysis - or maybe it is?
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.
