Future Law Lab (FLL)

Future Law Lab (FLL) will conduct activities directed at scientific research, education, expertise and networking in the field of theoretical and practical problems linked to interactions between law and empirical sciences, new technologies, contemporary phenomenons of society and civilisations. The actions undertaken by FLL shall lead to answers in response to the challenges raised by the increasingly dynamically evolving world, which need to be faced by legal sciences and our societies.

The first scientific activities in FLL will be focused on the following problems: 

  • Will the development of brain science (cognitive science, cognitive neuroscience, experimental psychology...) should influence the process of creation, interpretation and enforcement of law? Can the cognitive sciences ameliorate our understanding of behaviours, cognitive processes and decisions of the participants of legal transactions?

  • What possibilities and threats are linked to progress in information technologies (e.g. artificial intelligence and machine learning) and biotechnology (especially genetics) in the context of legal systems? How can we use this progress to the benefit of the society, at the same time preventing it from becoming a threat to justice, security and freedom?

Furthermore, FLL aims to react quickly to key emerging issues, in which law can be either a solution or a part of the problem.

Head: dr Bartłomiej Kucharzyk
