Liquid Legal IV

SUSTAINING THE RULE OF LAW – Artificial Intelligence, E-Justice, and the Cloud” embarks on a profound exploration of how cutting-edge technologies, including Artificial Intelligence (AI), E-Justice, and the Cloud, can play a pivotal role in sustaining the rule of law. The book delves into the evolving landscape of digital laws, the application of Agile and Design Thinking in legal methodologies, the intersection of business and IT in legal education, and the multifaceted dimensions of legal interoperability across disciplines and jurisdictions. It aims to illuminate the transformative trends shaping the legal industry, fueling the belief that these innovations can shift the aggregation state of legal practices from fossilized to liquid. By harnessing AI, E-Justice, and the Cloud, legal professionals aspire to uphold the rule of law as a cornerstone for freedom, prosperity, and security.

The book unfolds a comprehensive narrative around the intricate relationship between AI, E-Justice, and the Cloud in the legal domain. It addresses prevailing concerns in Europe, where legal professionals remain cautious about embracing the Cloud due to apprehensions related to access to justice, data security, and judicial independence. It navigates the delicate balance between leveraging the Cloud’s potential for end-to-end legal services and safeguarding the principles vital to the rule of law. Through critical analysis and insights, the book endeavors to provide a nuanced understanding of the circumstances under which these technologies could either enhance or potentially hinder the sustainability of the rule of law.
