SCL Student Bytes: Artificial Intelligence and the Law

An event for students interested in learning more about AI in a legal context, it’s benefits and limitations and addressing inherent bias.



Minesh Tanna, Solicitor Advocate and AI Lead, Simmons & Simmons and Chair of the SCL AI Group

Sara Vero, Emerging Technologies Counsel, JP Morgan and committee member of the SCL AI Group

This event will give attendees the opportunity to learn about AI and some of its benefits and limitations, particularly within a legal context.
The objective is to provide insight into the ways in which AI might be open to criticisms of inherent bias and how the law is able to address those concerns.

Attendees who are interested in entering the SCL Sir Henry Brooke Student Essay Prize 2021 will find this event particularly informative as they will be better equipped to answer this year’s competition question:

‘There is increasing concern that machine learning tools embed bias in their operations and outputs. To what extent does the law currently provide adequate protection from or adequate redress in respect of any such discrimination?’

The event is finished.
