She received an ERC Advanced Grant for her project on ‘Counting as a Human Being in the era of Computational Law’ (2019-2024), that funds COHUBICOL. In that context, she is co-founder of the international peer reviewedJournal of Cross-Disciplinary Research in Computational Law, together withLaurence Diver(co-Editor in Chief isFrank Pasquale) and she also initiated the Conference on Cross-Disciplinary Research in Computational Law that brings together lawyers, computer scientists and scholars from social science and the humanities, to investigate both the technical and the legal affordances of computational legal technologies. See the programme and recordings of the inaugural CRCL22 Conference here.
During her Fellowship, she will collaborate with Professor William Lucy (Law) and Dr Noura Al Moubayed (Computer Science) on the research project on ‘Justice and Artificial Intelligence’. She is delighted to continue her research into the assumptions of computational systems and their implications for law and the rule of law, more notably with regard to the integration of so-called artificial intelligence (AI) into legal research and legal practice. She will be working on a monograph on A New Hermeneutics for Computational Law, hoping to contribute to a proper ‘reading’ of the output of legal technologies that involve various types of AI. The monograph will build on her previous work and on the Typology of Legal Technologies that was developed by her ERC ADG team of lawyers and computer scientists and should be further inspired by the exchanges during her Fellowship at the IAS.
