OVERVIEW

New technologies are significantly changing the human epistemic strategies. Increasingly frequent is the use of IT filters to manage the information overload. Words such Algorithms, Artificial Intelligence and Big Data are commonly used. This course aims to analyze the possible impact of new technologies (and Artificial Intelligence in particular) on civil procedure and the role of lawyers.

AIMS AND CONTENT

LEARNING OUTCOMES

Analysis of the basic concepts of Artificial Intelligence, machine learning and predictive algorithms and their possible applications on civil procedure. Related implications for legal ethics.

AIMS AND LEARNING OUTCOMES

Attendance and active participation in the proposed activities and individual study will enable the student to

- know the basic concepts of Artificial Intelligence, machine learning, predictive algorithms and Big Data, also in view of the EU proposal on Artificial Intelligence Act of 21 april 2021 

- know the possible applications of Artificial Intelligence to the civil process, with some hints of its applications to Legal Design, blockchain and smart contracts

- know the current applications of machine learning in the US discovery phase

- identify the possible transformations of the role of the lawyer resulting from the use of Artificial Intelligence

TEACHING METHODS

Frontal lessons. Students’ active participation in classrooms is strongly recommended

SYLLABUS/CONTENT

The course is divided into three parts:

The first part analyzes the basic concepts of Artificial Intelligence, machine learning, predictive algorithms and Big Data

The second part analyzes the current (and possible future) application of Artificial Intelligence to the civil proceedings, with particular reference to Technology Assisted Review of documents used in the US discovery

The third part analyzessome of the main technical, ethical and deontological problems raised by the application of Artificial Intelligence to the civil proceedings, with particular attention to the Ethics guidelines for trustworthy AI adopted by the European Commission and to the possible modifications on the role of lawyers.
