institute overview The Research Center for Information Law, FIR-HSG, was established in 2000 by University of St. Gallen professors Jean Nicolas Druey, Herbert Burkert, and Rainer J. Schweizer.

The research initiatives at the Center are aimed at:
• analyzing and assessing legal frameworks and provisions that regulate the creation, distribution, access, and usage of information in a given social subsystem such as the economic, cultural or political system;
• exploring the dynamic changes in information technologies and their impacts on the legal system.
