MITRE Signs MOU with University of Montreal's Cyberjustice Laboratory

August 16, 2016

The University of Montreal's Cyberjustice Laboratory has concluded a memorandum of understanding with the U.S. research organization The MITRE Corporation, in a bid to enhance access to justice and support the rule of law locally and abroad.

This agreement is the fruit of ongoing discussions between Karim Benyekhlef, Director of the Cyberjustice Laboratory, and Bradford Brown, Portfolio Director & Senior Advisor at MITRE's Center for Judicial Informatics, Science & Technology (CJIST).

The Cyberjustice Laboratory initially welcomed MITRE during an October visit of its research infrastructure, and representatives from both organizations met again the following month during the World Bank's Law Justice and Development (LJD) Week in Washington, D.C.

Both institutions have agreed to consolidate their experience, leverage their respective expertise, and collaborate on projects within the framework of the World Bank's Global Forum on Law Justice and Development, where the Cyberjustice Laboratory co-leads the Community of practice on alternative dispute resolution, but also on an ad hoc basis.
