On 26 January, the Whitaker Institute was delighted to host Algorithms, Big Data and Artificial Intelligence in the Irish Legal Services Market by Dr Rónán Kennedy as part of the Whitaker Webinars series The webinar examined the issues raised by the rapid development of software for legal services, commonly known as ‘lawtech’. This could reduce legal costs and provide better access to justice. It could also worsen the ‘digital divide’ and solidify existing biases in the legal system. The webinar highlighted possible areas for immediate legislative intervention, and longer-term questions for society to consider.
