    Abstract

    Technological innovation, presents us with both new opportunities and new risks, with increasing speed and impact. What role can law play in fostering the opportunities while providing safeguards against the risks? This is the challenge of 'smart rules and regimes', achieving topicality of legal regulation while balancing interests involved; being adaptable and robust at the same time. What legal approach is necessary to meet regulatory needs? In the seminar some first thoughts are presented on the possibilities of a legal design methodology which, apart from offering guidelines to regulation in general could perhaps be dedicated especially to innovative areas of legal regulation, where traditional 'copy paste' legal methods may not suffice. As such, both the aspect of the internal structure of norms as the external regulatory context of rulesand regimes, are addressed.
