Education: Pass it on to the next generation…

As prominent researchers in the domain of Law & Technology, it is both our pleasure and responsibility to pass on our knowledge and expertise to future generations. Responsible innovation, guided by legal and ethical frameworks, is a prerequisite for a healthy and flourishing society. Therefore, the research within LTMS forms the basis for multiple courses taught in different educational programs. The most prominent program linked to LTMS is the Master’s program in Law & Technology. Within this program the impacts of technology are studied from legal, ethical, political, technical and societal perspectives, raising questions about the need, desirability and preferred modality of regulation to mitigate the possible negative impacts of technological change on society. Besides our commitment to this Master’s program, LTMS staff are highly involved in legal and ethical education in the different Data Science programs. LTMS researchers are also involved in other educational programs such as the BSc in Global Law, BSc in Liberal Arts and Sciences, LLM in European Law and Global Risks and LLM in Dutch Law. LTMS is also an active participant in Post Academic Education, offered by TiU, JADS and the TIAS Business School.
