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 part of the Law Sector Plan, funded by the Dutch Ministry of Education, Culture and Science (OCW).

What regulatory and legal challenges must be addressed to protect digital information, privacy and trust?
How can digital technologies help manage the pandemic, while respecting fundamental rights such as privacy?

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"?
What is the role of human autonomy in a data-driven society, and how can it be protected?
