International Legal Ethics Conference 2024 (ILEC 10), The University of Amsterdam, July 17-19, 2024

“Legal Professionals in a Digitalising World”

The Amsterdam Centre on the Legal Profession and Access to Justice, Amsterdam Law School, The Netherlands
July 17-19, 2024 

ILEC 2024 will focus on Legal Professionals in a digitalising world. Digitalising within the justice sector has primarily consisted of the use of relatively simple assisting technologies, such as automated case management, digital filing, and search engines. More recently, more complex applications have been deployed by law firms, courts, and law enforcement agencies, such as the use of expert systems, predictive analytics, machine learning, and natural language processing technologies. Also, the market for legal self-help apps has been growing rapidly. In addition, several jurisdictions are now experimenting with online courts, whose primary function is to adjudicate high-volume, low-value claims.

ILEC 2024 aims to contribute to the scholarly, professional, and public debate on the use of new technologies within the justice sector and on the regulatory responses so far, both in Europe and abroad, from the perspective of legal ethics and the rule of law.

By means of keynote lectures, roundtable sessions, and a special stream on the topic of Legal Ethics and New Technologies in the Justice System, several fundamental themes and questions will be addressed.
