The AI Act and its implications for Legal Practice: A European Perspective
This day-long pre-conference will set the stage for ILEC 2024 by introducing participants to AI regulation in the European context and inviting them to explore its practical implications for the legal professions. In a series of collaborative sessions, participants will reflect on how the forthcoming EU AI Act will regulate the future of legal practice.
The day will start with a keynote speech by Pietro Ortolani. Subsequently, participants will have the opportunity to choose between two workshops. The first is a ‘legal tech workshop’, which offers participants a deep dive into emerging legal technologies, organized by Rachel Rietveld. The second is a ‘sci-fi prototyping writing session’ in which participants will be asked to creatively reflect on the future of the legal profession. This will be led by Kimon Kieslich. The day will conclude with a panel that brings together representatives of European legal professional organizations to discuss how the AI Act relates to self-regulation, and what challenges and opportunities they expect this new era of digitalization will bring.
Date: 16th of July, 2024
Location: Amsterdam Law School, University of Amsterdam
