About the Centre
The Jean Monnet Centre of Excellence for Law and Automation (Lawtomation) is a focal point of competence and knowledge on the impact of automation on law that promotes excellence in teaching and research.
Lawtomation develops synergies between legal experts and data scientists, in an open dialogue with policy makers, civil servants, practitioners, and the civil society at large.
The Centre is co-financed by the European Commission, under the Erasmus+ programme.
About Our Research
The Centre gathers the expertise of scholars from three schools of IE University: IE Law School, IE Business School and IE School of Science and Technology.
It fosters interdisciplinary research beyond knowledge silos to address the multiple challenges that automation represents for law.
About our Teaching
The Centre aims to promote excellence in teaching by designing and delivering teaching and training activities on law and automation. The research conducted at the Centre fuels teaching. The Centre participants design and deliver the content of teaching sessions and the overall courses’ syllabi.
Teaching is embedded in regular courses and Advanced Seminars that are open to all (Law and other) programs at IE University. Some teaching sessions are open to civil society.
The Centre is in charge of teaching commitments under LEGROB, the Jean Monnet Module on Liability of Robots.
