AI and Law workshop series 

Some courts in Canada and the world face issues dealing with everyday legal disputes. As individuals enter the often complex, time-consuming and expensive court system, frequently without the support of a legal professional, their ability to obtain a fair and quick resolution to their disputes can be diminished.

In this workshop series, we will explore the use of computer systems and artificial intelligence to increase access to justice. For this purpose, we have invited two pioneers, one in the field of access to justice and one in the field of computational law and artificial intelligence. They will present their work, discuss the overlaps between the two fields and respond to questions from the audience.
