Legal Ethics in the Age of Law and Tech

Professing Ethics

Join a distinguished panel of international experts to explore the implications of recent and future developments in law & technology for contemporary legal ethics.

  • Technological competence: how much are lawyers obliged to adapt to technological change?
  • How is artificial intelligence transforming the legal profession and expectations of professional competence?
  • Machine learning’s impact on the legal profession and legal ethics: threat or opportunity?
  • How can lawyers protect the privacy of client information in light of technological developments?
  • How can lawyers use technology to become more efficient, including formulating more sophisticated search queries and, perhaps, learning to code?
  • Automated prediction of judicial decisionmaking based on neuro-linguistic programming (NLP): the example of the European Court of Human Rights
  • What is the relation between legal ethics, technology, and the rule of law?
