Artificial Intelligence & Machine Learning


Barristers from Cloisters have been at the forefront of important work examining the interplay between artificial intelligence, technology, equality, employment law and data protection.

Key papers include: "Technology Managing People – the legal implications” (2021) which was published by the TUC, “Regulating for an Equal AI: A New Role for Equality Bodies” (2020) which was published by Equinet and “In the matter of automated data processing in government decision making” (2019) which was published by The Legal Education Fund.

Cloisters barristers also recently created a bespoke training programme for UK regulators funded by the Council of Europe and the CDEI which explored the principle of non-discrimination in the context of artificial intelligence across a range of sectors from employment law to commerce to criminal justice.
