First Advisory Board meeting Legal Technologies programme

In The Hague, the Leiden Centre of Data Science (LCDS) in close collaboration with the Centre for Professional Learning (CPL) is developing a Legal Technologies programme. They do so in cooperation with three faculties of Leiden University, namely the Faculty of Governance and Global Affairs (FGGA), the Faculty of Law (FdR) and the Faculty of Science (FWN). The organisation is supported by the municipality of The Hague.

The developments are fruitful, the start is envisioned in January 2021, and the main advisors  have recently provided their first guidelines, ideas and substantive advices on how to address Lawyers and Judges who see the arrival of computers in the Courts as a step to narrow their comfort zone.
