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 part of the Law Sector Plan, funded by the Dutch Ministry of Education, Culture and Science (OCW).
What is the impact of AI, data, data science and automation 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"?
Digital Legal Talks
In December, we will look back at the first year of our research initiative during a day filled with talks & workshops. Researchers from all 4 partner universities will share their findings and talk about their ongoing research.
The very first edition of our annual Digital Legal Talks will be hosted online and is open to all.
19, 20 & 21 may
