CENTRE FOR LEGAL INNOVATION AND DIGITAL SOCIETY (CLINDS)

The Centre for Legal Innovation and Digital Society 法律創新與數碼社會研究中心 (CLINDS)  facilitates and encourages cutting-edge and innovative research in law and technology at CUHK LAW.

It is the mission of CLINDS to

  • provide institutional support for first-class research in the areas of law and technology;
  • foster collaborative and interdisciplinary research projects within CUHK LAW and with external parties;
  • facilitate research with high impact beyond academia;
  • develop policy proposals for consideration by government bodies in Hong Kong and abroad;
  • be recognized as the leading centre of excellence in the area of law and technology in Asia;
  • be dedicated to teaching excellence across the University by promoting interdisciplinary approaches to course design and materials, as well as teaching-related collaboration with other Faculties;
  • serve as a premier local, regional and international forum of inter-institutional collaborations in the law and technology;
  • contribute to the betterment of society through knowledge transfer activities, including media engagement and collaboration with law firms, business entities, international organizations and non-governmental entities.

CLINDS was previous known as the CUHK LAW Centre for Financial Regulation and Economic Development (CFRED) founded by Professor David Donald in 2010 to support and facilitate research in all areas of law affecting commerce and business. In 2017, CFRED changed the direction of its activities towards research projects related to law and technology. In 2022, CFRED was re-organized and re-named as CLINDS to better reflect the centre’s new focus thus mirroring CUHK LAW’s strength in law and technology.
