Law and Tech Lab will be officially launched in the next few weeks
The digital society begs new questions about how innovative technologies interact with law and justice. The interaction between law and technology essentially goes in two directions: Technology for Law, and Law for Technology. For this reason the Maastricht Law and Tech Lab has been recently set up at Maastricht University’s Faculty of Law.
The digital transformation of society through data science and artificial intelligence has also brought about different ethical, legal and social issues on privacy, cybersecurity, intellectual property, taxation and competition law. This is the ‘Law for Technology’ perspective.
Understanding the legal issues involved requires an in-depth understanding of the functioning
of data economy and the specific technology in question.
