Artificial Intelligence and the Law

The West Virginia Law Review is proud to present the Volume 123 Symposium: Artificial Intelligence and the Law. Taking place February 25-26, 2021, this inaugural virtual symposium brings together lawyers, academics, and experts to discuss how artificial intelligence impacts the legal profession, the law, and society as a whole.

The Symposium will feature a distinguished group of scholars addressing the intersection of artificial intelligence and various areas of law including legal ethics, intellectual property, access to justice, consumer protection, technology, and social media. The Symposium consists of six panel discussions, two featured speaker presentations, and a keynote address by Professor Sandra Wachter of the Oxford Internet Institute at the University of Oxford.

The West Virginia Law Review is publishing several papers from this conference in Issue 3 of Volume 123.
