Discover the legal challenges posed by new AI technologies alongside top experts

From self-driving cars to virtual voice assistants, the use of artificial intelligence (AI) has greatly increased in recent years. AI is making us question the way we think about society itself – and poses crucial legal, regulatory, ethical, and human rights challenges for lawyers and citizens alike.

On this introductory course, you’ll explore what artificial intelligence is, evaluating its rationale and objectives, and how it can be regulated by law.

This includes discussing key topics such as compliance, privacy, governance, and the bias to be found in AI-powered systems.

The course will be followed by a second course, AI for Legal Professionals (II): Tools for Lawyers planned for February 2021.
