A new revolution is on the way, with the emergence of artificial intelligence in the field of justice. AI is promising to reduce repetitive and time-consuming tasks, speed up judicial processes, make the judge's task easier and make court decisions more reliable and fairer.
But the use of algorithms by the judicial system, the massive exploitation of judicial data or the use of automated machine learning systems raise many questions and constitute a real challenge for the judicial institution and lawyers.
Such essential principles as the contradictory, or the equality of arms, can be strongly impacted by the use of artificial intelligence.
How can the development and use of AI-based tools and applications to guarantee the fundamental rights and freedoms of citizens be framed? What procedural guarantees will we have to discuss the diagnoses provided by intelligent systems? How will we be able to evaluate the quality of the data collected and used by the algorithms? How should the training of lawyers evolve, to enable them to detect and correct algorithm biases? What tools will law firms need to develop to effectively assist and defend their clients? Finally, what will be the respective place of humans and machines in the justice of tomorrow?
These and other questions will be discussed at the Conference in Lille, which will bring together legal practitioners, bar associations and academics from all over Europe.

 The conference will be held in French and English (with simultaneous interpretation)

This conference is validated as part of the continuing training of lawyers in France.

This conference is also certified as Continuous Professional Development and is equivalent to 7 hours in Finland.
