PROJECTS

 

Research Programme in Computational Law

The Research Programme in Computational Law will study and develop open source technologies for ‘smart’ contracts and ‘smart’ statutes, starting with the design and implementation of a domain-specific programming language (DSL) that allows for laws, rules and agreements to be expressed in code. This paves the way for ‘smart’ contracts and statutes that can be reliably executed by computers to enable precise and accurate performance and compliance. Industry-adoption of the DSL will facilitate the delivery of more efficient legal and regulatory services through digital systems, and will broaden access to justice. This research programme is funded by the National Research Foundation and the Infocomm Media Development Authority of Singapore.
