AI and ADR: Theory and Practice

AI series

Read more

New technology has become an integral part of the legal profession over recent years. However, when it comes to artificial intelligence (AI), it has also become a stumbling block. AI tools are capable of significantly increasing our professional efficiency, but unconditional reliance on AI may also adversely affect the procedural efficiency of all forms of private dispute resolution. This includes due process, confidentiality, enforceability and other principal procedural matters. The question many dispute resolution practitioners are asking is: To what extent can AI be used in our work?

AI and ADR: Theory and Practice is a series of webinars and Let’s Discuss networking events hosted by Ciarb with its partners TrialView and Jus Mundi.

Together, we’ll explore the realm of AI, including AI tools and their application. We will discuss how AI can be utilised in an efficient and safe manner, and what parties, counsel and tribunals should consider before using AI tools.


Each webinar focuses on a particular theme, giving you the opportunity to learn from experts in the field. You can then discuss the theme further with expert moderators and peers at a subsequent Let’s Discuss networking event.
