Coming soon: Special Research Guide dedicated to Artificial Intelligence


CAIJ will monitor advances in artificial intelligence with content rooted in its members’ professional practice. Many areas, including the automotive industry, the health sector and the manufacturing and distribution field, are already undergoing a major transformation. This will soon be a reality in the legal world as well.

What are the possible legal stakes of using technological tools in terms of the duties of confidentiality and competence provided in the Code of Professional Conduct of Lawyers?

This guide will promote a better understanding of the impact of artificial intelligence on law and provide special access to a technology watch by field:

  • Insurance – Connected vehicles, self-driving cars
  • Air and land transportation – Impact on regulations, traffic lights, self-driving vehicles, cross-border regulations, drones, etc.
  • Intellectual property – Copyright ownership of AI-generated art
  • Industrial property – Patent protection of AI-assisted inventions
  • Information technology – Contractual obligations for AI product suppliers
  • Privacy Rights – The notion of consent with the use of AI technologies: voice assistants, facial recognition, Internet of Things
  • Property and Liability – Liability for damage caused by things, impact on customer service, etc.
  • Banks and financial institutions – Regulations will have to be adapted to new financial service technologies (Fintech), open access to systems and data, supervision of digital identification.

Artificial Intelligence – Component of Legal Tech

Artificial intelligence is a research field with its own theories and techniques. Certain artificial intelligence tools in law are components of legal technology commonly known as Legal Tech. This technology offers a panoply of tools and platforms, ranging from the calculation of probabilities, to due diligence to electronic signatures. In all cases, data will be the controlling factor, since regardless of the artificial intelligence algorithm, the right answer – and the possibility of finding it – exist only if the answer is available and well preserved.

CAIJ and Artificial Intelligence

The main priority for CAIJ is the integrity of its legal data. It continues to develop its resources and services by constantly improving its systems and enhancing its searchable collections using the COVEO-powered UNIK search engine.

Furthermore, CAIJ refines data through classification plans and controlled vocabulary. It also enriches an exclusive file index containing a host of legal journal articles accessible in paper or digital format, in order to promote the relevance of legal research.

CAIJ will be the key source for accessing vital information on the impact of artificial intelligence in the legal sector and keeping up with developments in a rapidly evolving field.
