Artificial Intelligence Writing Competition: Winners Announced!

CLCT is pleased to announce the winners of the 5th Annual Artificial Intelligence Writing Competition. As in previous years, law students worldwide were invited to participate and share their reflections on innovative legal issues likely to arise from Artificial Intelligence and the Internet of Things.

This was a particularly competitive year, with an increase of 64% in the number of submissions. Students taking part represented universities from the U.S., Italy, Brazil, India, the U.K., Slovenia and many more.
