Lawyering on the Digital Age: A conference on tech in legal practice

Professor Francisco Elizalde will be speaking of the implications of legaltech in legal practice in a conference held at Allen & Overy in Amsterdam on October 17th and 18th. Practitioners, academics and legaltech companies will join him to discuss this topic.

The conference, co-organized by the Jean Monnet Module on Liability of Robots: A European Vision for a New Legal Regime (LEGROB) granted to IE Law School´s Professor Francisco de Elizalde, aims to bring together practitioners, academics, and legaltech companies to suggest an unbiased, but cautious, approach for the engagement of technology in legal practice.

The digitalisation and the development of automated systems , as well as the evolution of artificial intelligence, has radically changed the legal landscape and will continue to impact law at an accelerated pace. These developments already have led to the creation of a completely new “branch” or area within the legal sector, namely the legal tech industry. The wide range of different legal tech applications, including contract drafting software, case-law mining programs, smart dispute resolution systems, and so forth, make operations and tasks possible which were previously inconceivable or would demand an enormous amount of resources

Dr. Thibault Schrepel on blockchain and competition law

Dr. Thibault Schrepel, Assistant Professor in European Economic Law at Utrecht University School of Law, visited IE and spoke about competition law, blockchain and the legal implications behind this technology.

Many bets that all citizens will use blockchain in a near future, whether it is to vote, to buy food or to implement any kind of transactions.  All relationships between companies will also change, including prohibited ones. Although blockchain applications are still in their infancy, the potential legal issues that will result from them must be addressed without further ado. This is particularly true with regard to competition law which is often used to shape the market power that flows from technologies, but in fact, blockchain creates similar legal issues for all of the fields of private law.

During the seminar hosted by IE´s Research CenterDr. Thibault Schrepel explored how Blockchain may transform transactions the same way Internet altered the dissemination and nature of information. He also described the challenges that blockchain presents for analyses of unilateral anticompetitive practices and proposes some changes to antitrust law and regulations that address those challenges.
