The final session of the LIDW2020 Conference will consider a wide range of issues about how technology is affecting the business of law as well as about how the law needs to develop and adapt in order to provide a legal framework capable of maintaining the rule of law in this brave new world.

Science fiction is becoming reality as technology advances at an ever-increasing pace. The world of law is not left behind by the technological revolution. To date technology has mostly been used to aide human lawyers with the performance of their work. However, there are concerns that soon technology will be able to replace lawyers and perhaps even arbitrators or judges to a certain degree, and not just for repetitive tasks such as document review. The growing use of AI technology across all industries also raises novel questions including who is responsible if it goes wrong, and who is the owner if the AI creates new intellectual property.

It is intended that the session will culminate with real-time battle between a human lawyer and an AI! Is such a future already here? If it is, who will win?

Covid-19 Update - LIDW POSTPONED

To all our colleagues, friends and partners in the international disputes community.

In light of Covid-19, the LIDW events that are currently scheduled to take place in September will be postponed until the week of 10 May 2021.

While this is disappointing, we are keen that the international disputes community is able to make the most of the exciting programme of sessions that we have lined up so we can build on the momentum that LIDW2019 created. We look forward to developing that with you when it is safer for us all to be together in person.

We have been greatly encouraged by the response to the programme and look forward to the rescheduled event delivering crucial insights into the future of the business and law of international dispute resolution. Any ticket purchases already made for the 2020 event will carry over to 2021.

We look forward to welcoming you to the event in person in May 2021.
