The Maastricht Law and Tech Lab (‘The Lab’) aims to produce cutting-edge research, to offer innovative education, and to build a creative community of researchers, teachers, students and practitioners at the intersections of law, technology, data science and knowledge engineering.
Our digital society begs new questions about how innovative technologies interact with law and justice. Disruptive technology is changing the way in which lawyers work and legal services are offered. The digital transformation of our society through data science has also brought about many different ethical, legal and social issues on privacy, cybersecurity and intellectual property. The Lab fosters research, education and events on these matters.
Innovation in research and education
Research at the Lab focuses on:
Modelling legal complexity
Regulation of disruptive technology
Legal issues of the data economy
Here are all the different educational activities related to Law and Tech that you can get more information about. The Lab hosts several collaborative open research education initiatives.
