AI and Law: a Critical Overview


Le Laboratoire de cyberjustice et la Chaire LexUM en information juridique sont heureux d’annoncer la publication de l’ouvrage collectif AI and Law: a Critical Overview aux éditions Thémis. Cet ouvrage dirigé par le professeur Karim Benyekhlef, directeur du Laboratoire et titulaire de la Chaire LexUM, est le résultat d’un travail d’une réflexion approfondie et critique sur l’IA et le droit.

This book is the outcome of two scientific events on technocriticism of technoproducts and on providing a panorama of the legal implications of artificial intelligence, themes sharing the goal of identifying, from a diachronic perspective, the socio-legal consequences of technologies and the foundations of their pre-eminence in public discourse. These two aspects of technology are not unrelated since the pre-eminence of a technological narrative of our societies cannot fail to have consequences on law and what law does. In other words, the status our societies give technology and its magical power2 has a contagion effect on law, how law is understood3 and the ways rules are drafted and applied.
