Title of presentation: “Backup of Lost in translation”.
Summary: The aim of this presentation is to initiate an exchange of ideas between those interested in legal technology and its regulation, the field of legal translation studies and international law doctrines on the interpretation of multilingual treaties. If the process of formalising law is analogous to translation, we can begin to explore whether and under what conditions a formal model of a law should be treated as a ‘deemed authoritative’ version of the law it models.
Keywords: Legal tech, AI and law, formal logic, legal reasoning, AI ethics
