Post-Project Output: The Special Issue on ‘THE FUTURE OF COMPUTATIONAL LAW’

For the second CRCL Conference (CRCL23) in Brussels we invited a small number of key authors in the domain of computational ‘law’ to present their position on the future of code- and data-driven legal technologies. Their salient papers provide a research agenda for further development and integration of these technologies, including keen attention to the education and training of lawyers and computer scientists, the impact on access to justice, Rule of Law checks and balances, the need for targeted instead of general ‘solutions’ and an analysis of what the integration of AI in legal practice can and cannot achieve. The papers, by thought leaders across the spectrum of both law and computer science, have now been published in the Journal of Cross-Disciplinary Research in Computational Law, in this special issue.
