Thomas Snider, Patrick Gearon and Dalal Alhouti discuss the impact of AI on international arbitration for Legal Community MENA

As technology advances, Artificial Intelligence (AI) is having more  legal practices, including dispute resolution.

In a recent interview with Legal Community MENA, Thomas Snider (Head of International Arbitration), Patrick Gearon (Head of the Middle East practice) and Dalal Alhouti (Knowledge Development Lawyer), discuss the impact of AI on international arbitration.  

They explore how AI is currently used, its potential benefits and potential risks that need to be considered. 

See a snippet of the interview below:

Do you anticipate institutions issuing guidelines or regulations regarding the use of AI in arbitration, and if so, what might these entail? 

Yes, it is likely that institutions and other industry bodies will issue guidelines and amend their rules to acknowledge the use of AI and ensure it is used fairly and appropriately. Some national courts and institutions have already issued publicly available guidance, including the Courts of New Zealand, the DIFC Courts, the Silicon Valley Arbitration & Mediation Center and the Bar Council of England & Wales.  

Guidance is generally split between how to use the technology responsibly in light of its limitations and privacy issues, and the importance of using it openly and with client/parties’ consent.
