The Institute for Legal Informatics (IRI), being part of LUH’s School of Law and member of L3S, was established in 1983 and is the first Institute dedicated to scientific research on all issues of Information and Communication Technologies at a German University. With currently more than 50 people staff IRI is one of Europe’s largest institutions in the field and is actively involved in about 10 European research projects with a focus on data protection, data security and intellectual property. Nikolaus Forgó has been leading IRI in cooperation with Prof. Dr. Metzger since 2008.
