The Glushko & Samuelson Information Law and Policy Lab develops and promotes research-based policy solutions that protect fundamental rights and freedoms in the field of European information law. This student-run, IViR-led institution aims to convert gained insights from academic research into practical policy solutions and share these widely, providing students hands-on training under the supervision of experienced academics.

The Lab works on selected projects at the initiative and in close consultation with selected partners with a public interest mission, such as non-governmental organizations, policy think-tanks, public authorities, government agencies and local and (inter)national governments. Students work closely with other students and members of staff at the University of Amsterdam.

The Lab offers selected master students the unique possibility to combine theory and practice of information law. Under the supervision of staff members, students will, depending on the project, draft position papers, public briefings, legislative proposals, amicus briefs, responses to consultations and policy impact assessments.

The Lab is made possible by a donation by Pamela Samuelson and Bob Glushko.
