IRIS 2024: Language models – legal parrots or more? / AI & Law / E-Government / Crypto assets / M365

Dear readers

IRIS 2024

The 27th International Legal Informatics Symposium is currently taking place at the University of Salzburg and its general theme is "Language models: legal parrots or more?", one of the current key questions in the field of AI & law.

As in previous years, the scope of the conference is very broad, with contributions on virtually all areas of legal informatics.

This issue of Jusletter IT contains the articles on the general topic of legal language models as well as those on AI and law in general and the articles on e-government. As usual, the other IRIS contributions will be published in future issues. 

You can already order the printed conference proceedings with all contributions, edited by Erich Schweighofer, Stefan Eder, Federico Costantini, Felix Schmautzer and Jonas Pfister.

Also in this issue

The Basel Committee on Banking Supervision has presented a new standard on capital adequacy for crypto assets. Hans Kuhn and Rolf H. Weber analyse the requirements and procedures for adopting the standard into Swiss law. 

In the December issue of Jusletter IT, Markus Schefer and Philip Glass published an expert opinion on the use of M365 by public bodies. David Rosenthal has now written a response – while there is agreement on certain points, he comes to the opposite conclusion when it comes to access to data by US authorities.

In their TechLawNews Daniel Ronzani and Simon Schlauri deal with the deletion of data, the release of open source software by the federal government, guarantee and collective marks as well as the current legal situation surrounding Google Analytics.

We wish you an exciting read!
