About CLET

CLET is Africa’s premier research center for the study of law and emerging technologies.
  • Who we are

    CLET is a hub for scholars to explore how the law meets emerging technologies through research that has global impact. The center focuses on the eight frontier technologies: Blockchain, artificial intelligence, Big Data, robotics, drones, 5G, Internet of Things, and quode computing. Our research also delves into cross-cutting topics including regulation and policy development, ethical and human rights considerations, and the intersection of law, technology, industry, and society.

    The center convenes cohorts of researchers, industry specialists, startups and innovators looking to receive strategic guidance in the formulation of their solutions, and critical thinkers looking to provide policy solutions and to shape tomorrow’s legal framework and architecture.

    We are always keen to collaborate and partner with likeminded institutions and initiatives, and to support all collaborative efforts that facilitate deeper awareness of frontier technologies and the evolution of law.

  • We provide legal and policy ideas and facilitate conversations on cutting edge issues in law and emerging technologies at various levels. Through training, research, advocacy and constant engagement between industry, regulators and consumers, we are shaping the nature and content of the legal framework of the 4th Industrial Revolution.

    Through our various student and research centered initiatives, we are building an ecosystem of lawyers with a solid grasp of the technical and fundamental concepts of emerging technologies and their interactions with society. We provide students and industry experts a platform to interact and innovate with the law in mind, thus eliminating the friction between technological deployment and regulation and compliance.

    In keeping with the global nature of technology, we are focused on shaping the legal design that is most appropriate for the Ugandan and African environment, while taking into account the necessity of synergies, and varying levels of expertise that we can leverage in building the most ideal ecosystem. We thus consider ourselves as facilitators of the creation of an African legal and policy ecosystem that has harnesses global perspectives without trading off the uniqueness of our indigenous heritage.

  • These are to play an increasingly prominent role in forging policy recommendations to help provide guidance to the big law and technology questions of our time.
