Who We Are
About the digital legal lab
The Digital Legal Lab is a joint research network between Tilburg University, the University of Amsterdam, Radboud University Nijmegen 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).
issues we focus on
What is the impact of AI, data, data science, automation and digitalisation on the legal system?
What regulatory and legal challenges must be addressed to protect digital information, privacy and trust?
How can the shift from human to automated decision-making be mapped, understood and perhaps even shaped?
What challenges emerge when AI becomes
embedded in healthcare, and how can fundamental values be safeguarded by the use of "code"?
