The risks arising out of the use of AI and other technologies for legal work and the question, which governance systems are needed in response, have dominated the headlines in recent times. However, AI is – or at least will soon be – faster, more precise and more efficient than human lawyers can ever be. This seminar therefore aims to assess if there are any valid reasons for not delegating legal work to AI. It also discusses if and how legal technologies will change the world of lawyering in the future.
