Who we are

about the
legal lab

The Digital Legal Lab is a joint research network between Tilburg University, the University of Amsterdam, Radboud University and Maastricht University.

We bring together legal scholars, data scientists and academics from the humanities and social sciences to collaboratively explore the intersection of law, technology & society. Our joint research initiative – Digital Legal Studies – is funded through the Law Sector Plan of the Dutch Ministry of Education, Culture and Science (OCW).

Digital Legal Lab’s
Winter School 


The Winter School will focus on how legal researchers can experiment with methods to (I) perform their research more effectively with different audiences, for example exploring art-based techniques; (II) communicate and disseminate their results more powerfully using engaged methods; (III) build synergies with civil society, artists and practitioners; (IV) reflect on their positionality as legal researchers and their role as storytellers, mediators etc.
