Artificial intelligence (AI) has a growing normative impact on our daily lives. The use of AI in plentiful applications is already challenging many areas, issues, and concepts of established law. Much of the law that exists today logically evolved to account for human actions. As AI systems become smarter, more autonomous, and lacking in transparency in their decision-making, courts will face increasingly complex dilemmas in applying law to AI: in some cases, new law will be required; in others, existing law will need to be reformed. We urge developing a legal framework for law and AI in which to generate discussion on how the law can be used not only to spur innovation in AI but also to safeguard the rights of all parties involved as AI proliferates more deeply into society.
This Special Issue aims at promoting original and high-quality papers on the impact of AI on law from a multidisciplinary perspective. In particular, the Guest Editors seek papers on AI regulation, human rights considerations, constitutional law challenges, governance of algorithms, legal personality and AI, issues of privacy and data protection, AI and legal analytics, copyright and other fields of intellectual property law (e.g., patents), international humanitarian law, and criminal law. The issue also welcomes papers on classical topics related to AI and law, such as computational methods for negotiation and contract formation, machine learning and data analytics applied to the legal domain, intelligent legal tutoring systems, or intelligent support systems for law and forensics.
We cordially invite you to submit a high-quality original research paper or review to this Special Issue, “The Impact of AI on Law”.
