The Maastricht University Corporate Laboratory (MUCorpLab), part of the METRO Institute, focuses on innovation in research and teaching in the area of corporate law, with a particular focus on corporate finance law.
Technology will change the future of corporate law – we are here to change.
Within the next ten to fifteen years, technology will change drastically the business environment in the corporate legal industry. These developments will alter the ways in which law firms and in-house counsel will function, it will affect how legal research is conducted, the way in which legal documents are drafted and the overall management of these processes. Such change will not only have an impact on the legal industry but also more broadly on the functioning and purpose of legal rules.
Together with its partners, MUCorpLab’s mission statement is to become a front-runner in contributing to exploring and experimenting with legal solutions in this area.
Coupling corporate expertise with a 25-year track record in law and economics as well as comparative legal research, MUCorpLab offers a strong methodologically framework that takes into account economic realities as well as important differences between jurisdictions based on language, culture and socio-economic background.
The MUCorpLab consists, inter alia, of the Corporate Finance Law Honours Track and CorpDocEX.
