The Oxford LawTech Education Programme is a joint initiative by the Oxford Law Faculty and the Oxford Department of Computer Science members. Our mission is simple—to train future leaders in the legal market, confident providers of tech-enhanced legal services and successful innovators who can spot, analyse and utilise trends in digital technology.
Our approach is research-driven and builds on our world-leading expertise in digital technologies and relevant issues regarding both substantive law and the practice of law. To see examples of our work, visit the Unlocking the Potential of Artificial Intelligence for English Law project webpage.
Many experts from across the Oxford University, legal profession and LawTech industry are involved in the development and delivery of the programme. Currently, the core team is built around researcher and instructors involved in the interdisciplinary project and the Law and Computer Science course, namely, Professor Rebecca Williams (Law), Professor Tom Melham (Computer Science), Professor Ewart Keep (Education), and Dr Václav Janeček (Law).
Funding and Support
The Oxford LawTech Education Programme started thanks to the financial support by the University of Oxford and the UK Research and Innovation Industrial Strategy Challenge Fund (Next generation services).
