Information Systems, Business and Law – Lessons Learnt

  • Anna Bobkowska
Part of the Lecture Notes in Business Information Processing book series (LNBIP, volume 112)


This paper aims at exploring issues on the edge of information systems development, business process and decision making as well as related law and legal regulations. It describes several lessons learnt based on author’s experience when applying a method of integrated legal and technical analysis in the development of an information system in the area of intellectual property protection. They contribute to the taxonomy of possible impacts of law on information systems as well as to the design of efficient methods which facilitate collaboration between analysts, lawyers and business decision makers.
