The Laboratory is a space for the study and development of ICTs designed to improve dispute resolution processes, whether judicial or extrajudicial; it is a hub for reflection and creativity, where justice processes are modeled and re-imagined.
Laboratory Research Objectives
The Laboratory’s research team seeks to gain a better understanding of the sociolegal obstacles to the networking of judicial stakeholders and attempts to identify very concrete remedies to facilitate the development of a new generation of software adapted to the needs of the judicial stakeholders.
The ultimate goal of the work of the Laboratory is to optimize the traditional legal process so as to improve its efficiency, reduce costs and delays, and simplify mechanisms.
The Laboratory relies on an international multidisciplinary team of 58 researchers and a unique research facility that includes a cutting-edge courtroom and an IT centre. Benefiting mostly from public funding, this research infrastructure is anchored to two of the largest research institutions in Quebec: Université de Montréal and McGill University.
