PRACTICAL INFORMATION

 

Description: 

The one hour special civil webinar will touch upon legal tech and artificial intelligence impact on justice and challenges in practice

Digitalisation and the development of automated systems, as well as the evolution of artificial intelligence (AI), have radically changed the legal landscape, and will continue to impact law at an accelerated pace. These developments have led to the creation of a new industry, legal tech (LT), which aims at creating technological applications specifically tailored for law and the legal market. Despite the significant uncertainties surrounding LT, the legal professions are approaching a ‘tipping point’, and the legal services market is in need of new business models and talent procurement strategies.

 The talk will discuss the real implications posed by LT and to advocate for an unbiased, cautious approach for the engagement of technology in legal practice. It is important for the legal community to have a framework for analysing the benefits and costs of new technologies, before implementing them into legal practice. The costs of LT include potential legal and business risks, as well as ethical concerns and technological problems. LT will have profound consequences not only for lawyers, but also for their clients, as well as the economy and legal system as a whole. Time-permitting the talk will touch upon: (1) effects of LT on legal practice; (2) LT and the court systems; (3) LT and small/consumer claims; and (4) fate of the professions.
