LawLab – Fintech & AI

The LawLab – Fintech & AI was founded on 1 November 2021 and is designed to address research questions on the regulation of technological changes in financial services due to digital transformation (fintech) as well as on the regulation of artificial intelligence (AI). An interdisciplinary approach is a characteristic feature. The LawLab – Fintech & AI is closely tied to the SAFE Policy Center and headed by Katja Langenbucher, Professor of Civil Law, Commercial Law, and Banking Law at the House of Finance of Goethe University Frankfurt, as SAFE Research Professor.

At its core, the LawLab – Fintech & AI serves as platform for scientific workshops in exchange with other international universities, thus covering not only the German market for fintech and AI. In addition, the “Fintech Policy Lecture Series” as event format incorporates experiences from politics and regulatory practice.
