Tobias Mahler
Professor, Norwegian Research Center for Computers and Law (NRCCL), University of Oslo
Tobias Mahler teaches law at the faculty of law at the University of Oslo. He is a professor at the Norwegian Research Center for Computers and Law (NRCCL), specializing in information and communications technology law. His research interests cover a broad range of legal issues arising in the context of (i) robots, particularly with artificial intelligence capabilities, (ii) Internet governance (especially the domain name system), as well as (iii) cybersecurity and privacy. This focus on legal issues is complemented with research interests in legal informatics more closely related to computer science. The latter line of research has focused on software applications for legal practice, such as, legal risk management and visual representations of legal reasoning. He holds a PhD from the University of Oslo, an LLM degree in legal informatics from the University of Hannover, and a German law degree (first state exam). He has practised law in Norway as corporate lawyer in the automotive industry, primarily working with international commercial contracts. He teaches primarily robot regulation, cybersecurity regulation, legal tech and artificial intelligence. He is the deputy director of the NRCCL and the director of the centre’s LLM programme.
