Data-Driven Law. The New Path of the Law?

EU Hildebrandt

Mireille Hildebrandt is a Research Professor on 'Interfacing Law and Technology' at Vrije Universiteit Brussels (VUB). She works with the research group on Law Science Technology and Society studies (LSTS) at the Faculty of Law and Criminology. She also holds the part-time Chair of 'Smart Environments, Data Protection and the Rule of Law' in the Science Faculty at the Institute for Computing and Information Sciences (iCIS) at Radboud University Nijmegen. Her research interests concern the implications of automated decision-making, machine learning and mindless artificial agency for law and the rule of law in constitutional democracies. More recently, she has turned her attention to transformations of current—text-driven law—under the influence of data-driven and code-driven regulation and legal decision-making. She investigates how this may change law’s ‘mode of existence’, and argues for ‘legal protection by design’ (built-in legal protection) as a counterpoint to the rise of ‘legal by design’ (built-in compliance). Hildebrandt has published four scientific monographs, 21 edited volumes or special issues, and over 100 chapters and articles in scientific journals and volumes. In 2018 she received an ERC Advanced Grant for her project on ‘Counting as a Human Being in the era of Computational Law’ (2019-2024).
