PLMJ Chair in Law and Technology

Thanks to a grant from PLMJ, one of Portugal’s largest and most prestigious law firms, Católica | Lisbon School of Law and Católica Global School of Law established the PLMJ Chair in Law and Technology.

The Chair allowed Católica to appoint Professor Giovanni De Gregorio, one of the world’s most promising scholars working at the intersection of law and technology, as a resident faculty member.

Professor Giovanni De Gregorio is the author of the monograph Digital Constitutionalism in Europe. Reframing Rights and Powers in the Algorithmic Society (Cambridge University Press 2022) and of numerous influential articles published in edited books and international journals. This, in his words, “is an important moment to focus on the constitutional challenges raised by the evolution of the digital age, and I am happy to have the chance to contribute to the understanding of these challenges”. Católica’s LL.M. Law in a Digital Economy, he added, “is definitely a first step to understand these transformations”.
