We live in a digital world. Commercial law plays a key role in the development of digital economy. On this course, we explore some of the key aspects of digital economy through the lens of commercial law. We will also study its wider impact on society. Since the context is digital, this course has no lectures in class and the exam is an e-exam in an examination studio. 

This course can be taken by students both from Helsinki and Vaasa.

The course can be taken as part of the study module in Corporate Responsibility.


You have knowledge of the main legal aspects of digital platforms, electronic commerce, the internet of things (such as technical platforms, artificial intelligence and robots), the use of blockchain, and digital data issues (such as cybersecurity, integrity and data protection). You are aware of the societal impact of digital economy and the role of governance in digital society and economy.

Efter avlagd kurs kan du 
  • describe the main commercial law aspects of digital economy relating to electronic commerce, digital platforms, and data;
  • describe the objectives of regulators and firms in this context;
  • apply legal tools and practices in digital economy.

Online course.


While digital markets are global, on this course you will focus on commercial law in Europe.
