Two vacancies for PhD positions on data science and law (Leiden University)

Data analytics can be used as a research method in the field of legal research. It may improve the efficiency of legal research, disclose unexpected results and decrease the likelihood of missing important information.

Since legal practice is becoming more and more multidisciplinary, judges and lawmakers will increasingly need to be data-savvy, and they will have to deal with sensitive issues of data sharing and privacy. This shows that legal data science not only offers great new opportunities, but that it also raises new questions. 

The Leiden Graduate School of Legal Studies has two vacancies for PhD positions on data science and law. It welcomes proposals that apply data analytics in  the legal domain. More information about the vacancies.
