Ongoing digitisation and developments in artificial intelligence are increasingly influencing the legal world, be it the need to develop new regulations for the handling and protection of data and their owners, or dealing with algorithms governing legal processes in legal administration and the judicial system. Europe and Japan are facing similar social and political challenges in this respect and the aim of this session is to provide a platform for a comparative exchange with the participation of well-known experts and proficient speakers to discuss and develop sustainable solutions together.
The topics will address various related questions, from potential opportunities and benefits arising thanks to the fast progress of AI and the possible associated risks to the rule of law to how these developments affect members of the legal profession—judges, lawyers, academics and businesses—now and in the future.
This session discusses ongoing collaboration by Japan, France and Germany in this field and how these
collaborative efforts can and should be improved in the future.
