“Ensuring Legal Compliance in Corporate Implementation”, a seminar crafted for professionals in the legal arena, keen to dive deep into the world of AI technology and its legal challenges.
The goal of this course is to enhance your technical knowledge and legal proficiency regarding AI, particularly Generative AI. It aims to prepare you to maneuver through the dynamic intersection of AI and the law. Topics covered include GDPR, AI liability, discrimination, and the AI Act – a domain where the need for legal counsel is increasing, yet specialists are few.”

Your journey begins with an in-depth understanding of AI and generative AI. Engage with the workings of revolutionary products like ChatGPT and comprehend the legal implications they bring along. Grasp how AI can be broadly applied, identify patterns and uses, and learn about the strategic implications generative AI holds for corporates. Whether impacting core value creation processes or support processes, the influence of AI is undeniably significant.

As the seminar progresses, we delve into the practical aspects of AI applications development. From the intricacies of project management to the stages where legal advice becomes critical, we cover it all. Understand the various kinds of legal issues that might arise, and the best way to address them.

Next, we have the honor to host Prof. Dr. Philipp Hacker a distinguished law professor at the University of Frankfurt (Oder) who guides us through the complex intersection of AI, ethics, and law. After an introduction to AI and ethics, we explore organizational provisions and guidelines that can help preempt problems.

We then move to the heart of AI – Data. The seminar emphasizes data protection regulations, with a special focus on GDPR, always tying it back to the stages of AI project management. We also delve into the contentious subject of personal and personalizable data.
Subsequently, we tackle the thorny issue of bias and the resulting discrimination in AI. This is followed by an insightful session on product liability, an intriguing topic given AI’s probabilistic nature.

The seminar continues on the following day with a deep dive into IP and Copyright, acknowledging the role of open source licenses. Up next is a detailed explanation of the EU AI ACT followed by the EU Data Act, both legislative pieces not yet in force or finalized, but ones that are set to massively impact today’s product development decisions. We then discuss the EU DMA Digital Market Act.

After the information-rich sessions presented interactively, we facilitate an in-depth discussion on the impact and practical guidelines for implementing AI in a compliant way.
The seminar culminates with the demonstration and practical tips on tools that can be immediately implemented in your legal practice. For validation of your learning, we administer a short test, the successful completion of which awards you with our course certificate.
Step into the future of AI and law with “Demystifying Generative AI: Ensuring Legal Compliance in Corporate Implementation”. Equip yourself with the knowledge and confidence to advise and steer your organization or clients through the intricacies of AI technology and its related legal challenges.
