Law and Artificial Intelligence: Possibilities and Regulations on the Road to the Consummation of the Digital Verdict




artificial intelligence, judicial processes, big data, machine learning


Aim: The continuous growing influence of technologies based on artificial intelligence will continue to have an increasingly strong impact on various fields of society, which is evident in the generation of a great expectation in continuous evolution that revolutionises many activities, including those of the legal sector.


Methodology: That is why this paper aims to shed light on those aspects of artificial intelligence in the legal field that are not very clear and on some of the most relevant implications that, despite not being well known, will have a considerable impact on society at various levels, such as the role of bots in law firms, algorithms to assist in the treatment of cases and dilemmas such as whether non-professional users can trust the decision(s) that such tools would recommend, among others.


Results: It also examines the ethical criteria linked to the application and its development.


Conclusion: It concludes with a critical exposition from an academic perspective, without neglecting the aspect of public access to artificial intelligence and how to bring together a process of globalisation of the regulatory framework of these technologies.


Originality/Value: this study highlities technologies based on artificial intelligence.
