About the digital legal lab
About our collaboration
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.
The law sector plan
OUR RESEARCH NETWORK is funded by THE DUTCH MINISTRY OF EDUCATION, CULTURE AND SCIENCE (OCW), in consultation with nwo, THROUGH THE LAW SECTOR PLAN.
Through sector plans, the Netherlands invests in innovative scientific research and academic talent. The Law Sector Plan – as part of the broader Sectorplan Social Sciences and Humanities (SSH) – incorporates several legal science themes. Our collaboration focuses on expanding and advancing one of those research themes: Digital Legal Studies.
