The Court Artificial Intelligence Research Association (Chairman  Sook-yeon Lee ) and the Korea Artificial Intelligence Law Society (Chairman Kyung-jin Choi) held a seminar on 'AI Information Technology and the Future of the Judiciary' in the conference room on the 4th floor of the West Building of the Court Complex in Seocho-dong, Seoul on the 9th.

The chairman was Lee  Sook-yeon (56, 26th class of the Judicial Research and Training Institute), a high court judge of the Patent Court, and the secretary  was Kwon Chang-hwan (49, 36th class), chief judge of the Busan Rehabilitation Court.

The Artificial Intelligence Research Society was launched as a community within the court at the end of October last year to research legal issues related to artificial intelligence (AI) to support trial work and to lay the foundation for streamlining trial work. One-third of the members are young judges who have passed the bar exam.

The first session of the day was held under the theme of ‘The future of the judiciary with the introduction of AI information technology from the perspective of each field.’  Judge Lee Sang-eon (38th, 42nd class) of the Incheon District Court gave the ‘Perspective from Inside the Court’,  Park Hye-jin (43rd, 37th class), a professor at Hanyang University Law School, presented ‘The Litigation Agent’s Perspective’, and Jeong Ji-yeon, Secretary General of the Korea Consumer Federation, presented ‘The Litigation Party’s Perspective’. ', Professor Jaesik Choi of KAIST gave presentations on the topic 'Perspectives on Legal Tech Development Field'.

Judge Lee Sang-eon argued that guidelines for AI use must be established to facilitate the introduction of AI within the judiciary. Judge Lee said, “Many judges are concerned about the side effects of AI, so there is a perception that unified norms are needed. This is an area where technological progress is rapid, so if established regulations are established, there is a possibility that they will soon become far from reality, so a loose form of regulation is necessary.” “It is desirable,” he said.

In the second session, experts from courts, law firms, and academia gathered to discuss. Park Won-jae, vice president of the Korea Intelligence and Information Society Promotion Agency, Professor Park Hye-jin, Judge Lee Sang-eon,  Lee Jeong-yeop (53/31st class), representative attorney at Ro Butler Law Firm,  Jeon Eung-jun (53rd/33rd class), attorney at Lin Law Firm, Secretary General Jeong Ji-yeon, and Professor Choi Jae-sik participated.
