Book description

The technology and application of artificial intelligence (AI) throughout society continues to grow at unprecedented rates, which raises numerous legal questions that to date have been largely unexamined. Although AI now plays a role in almost all areas of society, the need for a better understanding of its impact, from legal and ethical perspectives, is pressing, and regulatory proposals are urgently needed. This book responds to these needs, identifying the issues raised by AI and providing practical recommendations for regulatory, technical, and theoretical frameworks aimed at making AI compatible with existing legal rules, principles, and democratic values. An international roster of authors including professors of specialized areas of law, technologists, and practitioners bring their expertise to the interdisciplinary nature of AI.


‘What should lawyers make of the rapid insinuation of AI into our everyday dealings and decisions, including its reshaping of legal practices? In this impressive Handbook, a team of leading scholars and practitioners showcase the breadth, detail, and depth of private law’s engagement with AI. It is a compelling read.’

Roger Brownsword - King’s College London and Bournemouth University

‘The Handbook provides a tour de force for the impact of AI from technical, legal-regulatory, societal, democratic and ethical perspectives, taking into account current developments and trends in the field, as much as that which we should reasonably expect in the future. Scholars and the public are warmly invited to take this tour.’

Ugo Pagallo - University of Turin

‘The editors are to be congratulated on this excellent work. … this is an outstanding book that provides much food for thought.’
