ABOUT OUR RESEARCH CENTRE

THE LAW SCHOOLS OF 4 DUTCH UNIVERSITIES PARTNERED UP IN 2019 TO SHAPE AND STRENGTHEN THE EXPANDING NATIONAL AND INTERNATIONAL RESEARCH AGENDA ON DIGITAL LEGAL STUDIES.

Researchers from Tilburg University, Radboud University Nijmegen, Maastricht University and the University of Amsterdam are collaboratively working on important questions related to the digitalisation of law in all its forms.

Together, we explore how algorithms, data, automation and artificial intelligence affect our legal system and society. We aim to be a leading international research centre at the forefront of law & technology issues.
