The Cyberjustice Laboratory wishes to support and accompany students in the pursuit of their studies. To this effect, the Laboratory regularly awards scholarships to deserving students.


Doctoral Grants (x3) - Fall 2021

Law & Artificial Intelligence


The doctoral scholarship issued by the LexUM Chair on Legal Information and the Cyberjustice Laboratory is intended to encourage three (3) doctoral students to pursue a thesis on the theme of law and artificial intelligence.  The goal is to allow young researchers to participate in the remarkable dynamic that has, for several years now, been driving the Montreal metropolis in the field of artificial intelligence research.  By joining the Université de Montréal’s Law Faculty, the young researcher will have access to the world renowned Institut de valorisation des données (IVADO), which unites HEC Montréal, Polytechnique Montréal and the Université de Montréal, as well as to the pioneering work in Deep Learning pursued by the Montreal Institute of Learning Algorithms (MILA) located at Université de Montréal.

Although managing the effects of these innovations at the economic, social and political levels will undoubtedly be among the major projects in the coming years, the scope of their practical implications in the field of law remains largely unexplored.  It is for this reason that both the LexUM Chair on Legal Information and the Cyberjustice Laboratory of the Université de Montréal have decided to award a doctoral scholarship to encourage the new generation of researchers to partake in the many challenges posed by the law’s understanding of algorithms.

Within the LexUM Chair on Legal Information and the Cyberjustice Laboratory, the recipient of the scholarship will find a multidisciplinary collaborative environment conducive to mentoring and cutting-edge research on legal issues related to information technology and artificial intelligence.
