The Thesis Bank Process

Are you seeking answers to a tech-related legal problem? We provide a way for you to get those answers and at the same time provide our students the possibility of produce meaningful high quality research. The Thesis Bank works as follows:

  1. Write us a short description of the legal problem you wish to address. Narrow the theme down to a few, simple research questions if possible. If your interest concerns a wider topic, the focus will be later determined together with the selected student.
  2. We expect for you to provide a moderate compensation for the student, between 1000 and 2000 euros.
  3. Recommended time frame for research work is between 3 and 6 months starting from signing of the agreement. A thesis length is approximately 60-80 pages.
  4. The final thesis will be published in open access format in Legal Tech Lab’s webpage and University’s thesis database Helda. If the material or the commission includes classified data, it is possible that the student produces an additional summary/slideshow/memo including the classified information that won’t be published. However, this should be noted and agreed upon before signing the agreement.
  5. We hope that you would meet the selected student at least once during the writing process. Extra meetings, advisory meet-ups or providing the student any additional help, e.g. working space or equipment are optional and can be agreed upon as part of the contract.
  6. Please send us your inquiries and thesis topics using this form: . We will contact you shortly after.

Student selection and contract:

  1. Legal Tech Lab will publish a short summary of the topics, including information about the fee, timeframe and possible extra requirements.
  2. Legal Tech Lab will match a student with your topic. Students will be selected on the basis of their academic success and a motivation letter.
  3. After matching the student and the topic, we will provide you with a contract that forms the basis of the commission. The contractual relationship is between you and the student.
  4. The fee is paid directly to the student after the thesis has been accepted by the Faculty of Law.
