This internship is best for law students (University of Applied Science) who:
This position is based in Amsterdam, the Netherlands. Dutch is required!
LegalTech is more popular than ever. However, the large-scale adaptation of LegalTech is slowed down by a number of factors:
Many LegalTech applications use typical IT, AI and Data Science jargon, which is not understood by legal professionals. On the other hand, law books and case law use their own jargon, which is not understood by IT professionals and data scientists.
In order to bring these two worlds more together, this internship focusses on mapping the specific legal requirements of large information requests to the ZyLAB ONE eDiscovery software. Especially for business cases such as litigation, arbitration, subject access requests (GDPR), public records requests (verzoeken Wet Openbaarheid Bestuur – Wob), internal investigations, etc.
In addition, these internships should also document legal requirements needed to use technology for such processes and safeguard issues as privacy, security, and data protection at the same time.
The key challenges in this project are the mapping of legal terminology and requirements to that of the LegalTech world, AI and Data Science in particular. This requires a thorough understanding of all legal aspects of a certain application, as well as the ZyLAB ONE software, including its artificial intelligence and data science based machine learning and text-mining algorithms.
Other Expected / Desired Outcomes
The desired outcome is a well-documented best-practice guideline for the use of ZyLAB ONE software on a specific legal process.
