Artificial Intelligence gains foothold in Law School of China
Law students in USA usually tend to get a health of legal technology as part of their education in college. But what about international students? Given that most technology education, research & innovation happens in U.S., studying law in foreign colleges could actually be disadvantageous. However, there is one elite law school which is trying to make sure that it's students don't get left behind.
China's Peking University Law School has partnered with Gridsum, a cloud-based analytics platform, to create a research center that will focus on how artificial intelligence could be used in China's legal system. Legaltech News has more information on the big news:
"Gridsum will provide the technical and research backbone to the center as part of the partnership, drawing in part from AI technology developed for the company's "Faxin Wei SuĂ?Â˘" tool, a litigation service operating on Chinese communication platform WeChat's micro application platform.
The new center, the Peking University Legal AI Lab and Research Institute, or the "Legal AI Lab," launched on Friday with a ceremony hosted by Jingyi Ye, deputy party committee secretary of Peking University. Also in attendance were Shouwen Zhang, dean of Peking University Law School and director of the Legal AI Lab; Xiaolei Yang, vice president of Peking University Law School and executive director of the Legal AI Lab; and Guosheng Qi, CEO of Gridsum."
Qi, said in a statement that Grisdum colleagues "excited to be at the forefront of China's legal AI development and to have the opportunity to work in close cooperation with globally renowned legal academic institutions and individuals." He concluded his statement by noting this rare combination of both institutions will really help the judicial system of China which is planning to move towards a "Smart Court Initiative".
This should be a proud moment for the students at Peking Law, as this new development will help them stay abreast with students from U.S. and also enhance their skill sets.
