#1 COMPREHENSIVE GUIDE
AI & THE LAW
The study of Artificial Intelligence is a quest to measure our own humanity. "To be or not to be" - is that a question a machine will ever ask? - Dessislav
Mr. Dobrev's book is extremely well written, thoughtful and intuitive. The section on the practice of law will be of great interest to practitioners. The section on governance should be of great value to all of those involved in the regulation of AI. As a polyglot with civil and common law multinational experience, Mr. Dobrev is perfectly placed to explore the terra nova of AI which presents great challenges in adapting to various linguistic and legal regimes. His book is sure to whet the reader's curiosity as a primary source on the many facets of AI in its interaction with the law both now and in the future.
Dessislav Dobrev’s volume on Artificial Intelligence and the Law is a fascinating and eminently readable guide to this most timely of topics. There is little doubt that artificial intelligence is just beginning to have what will surely be a profound impact on all aspects of the law, and Mr. Dobrev’s volume explains clearly how and why that is so.
This book fills an important gap in the study of AI and the law. Every law student, lawyer and policy maker in the area of emerging technology would benefit greatly from a careful read of this excellent book. The questions with which the author contends could not be more timely, relevant and essential to the responsible and thoughtful navigation of our complex and rapidly evolving digital economy. It succinctly draws together legal, ethical and policy considerations in a highly accessible and engaging manner.
This book is an invaluable tour d’horizon of AI and law. For those who know more about law than AI, Dobrev defines, explains and illustrates what AI is, what it means for law and legal practice, and what law can do about AI. The book presents complex ideas, and the ethical challenges posed by the use of AI, in a way that is accessible, but never simplistic. This is a terrific book that is a pleasure to read. It should be required reading for lawyers, scholars, policy-makers and students.
