FBE New Technologies Commission

The FBE New Technologies Commission keeps an eye on AI. Last week, the President of the Commission, Maria Dymitruk, took part in the public presentation of the Guide on the use of Artificial Intelligence-based tools by lawyers and law firms in the EU organized by the Council of Bars and Law Societies of Europe (CCBE) and the European Lawyers Foundation (ELF) as a part of the AI4Lawyers project.

The event and the guide aim to provide information on how lawyers can responsibly use the opportunities provided by AI-based systems. The general aim is to help us, lawyers, in understanding what can or cannot be realistically expected from AI, what are the risks to professional obligations when using AI tools, and how to use AI tools and improve our workflows – as small law practices – in six different categories:

  1. drafting support,
  2. document analysis,
  3. text retrieval and case law analysis,
  4. speech-to-text,
  5. chatbots,
  6. assistance in internal office administration work.

During the event wide range of European experts in the field of artificial intelligence have presented their thoughts on the digitalisation of justice in Europe, challenges/opportunities of the digital transformation of law firms as well as the issue of AI-delivered justice. Particular attention was paid to the new EU proposal for Artificial Intelligence Act.

Message urgent de la FBE

Monsieur le Bâtonnier, Madame la Bâtonnière, 

Les réfugiés d’Ukraine principalement femmes et enfants arrivent en masse en Pologne.

Les Barreaux  polonais se sont mobilisés et nos confrères et consœurs les  assistent bénévolement sans compter leur temps et leurs heures .

Nombre de ces réfugiées ont de la famille dans nos pays et aimeraient les rejoindre .

Le Conseil de l’Union Européenne se réunit jeudi 3 mars prochain pour, nous l espérons, proposer des solutions afin d accueillir toutes ces personnes en grande souffrance .

Il conviendrait que votre Barreau puisse communiquer sans délai (presidence@icab.cat) les coordonnées d au moins 2 avocats spécialisés qui pourraient fournir à nos confrères de Pologne les informations nécessaires aux réfugiés dans chaque pays considéré .

Même si nous devons attendre les décisions européennes,  il nous semblait important de solliciter votre coopération sans délai.

Bien confraternellement votre.

Dominique ATTIAS

Présidente

Statement of the FBE – UKRAINE

The FBE Presidency and the Human Rights Commission met with colleagues from the Ukraine National Bar Association, and lawyers from all over Ukraine. Lawyers and judges in Ukraine need our support at this time as they continue to provide legal services to all those in peril in Ukraine. We were asked to assist with specific actions of support.

We call upon our members to adopt the following three actions in their Bar Associations and Law Societies in order to assist our colleagues in Ukraine:
1. To send messages of support to the Ukraine National Bar Association, and to publicise those widely;
2. To send financial assistance to help the lawyers continue to provide legal services;
3. To spread the contacts to as many Bar Associations all over the states of the Council of Europe and beyond.

Any Bar Association who wishes to help please contact: Dr Valentyn Grovzdiy, Vice President of UNBA v.grovzdiy@unba.org.ua for further information.

Please see UNBA website: www.unba.org.ua
What they need first of all are the funds.

La FBE se tient aux côtés de l’Ukraine, de ses citoyens et de l’Ordre national du barreau ukrainien et condamne une violation flagrante du droit international par la Russie

La Fédération des Barreaux d’Europe (FBE) représentant 250 Barreaux nationaux et régionaux et 1 million d’avocats condamne les actions militaires entreprises par la Russie contre l’Ukraine et est solidaire de ses citoyens, y compris de tous les avocats exerçant leur profession dans ces moments difficiles. La FBE, en tant que voix européenne des professionnels du droit, demande instamment à la Russie de cesser immédiatement l’invasion et de respecter la souveraineté de l’Ukraine et son intégrité territoriale, car cette attaque menace la vie de millions de personnes et constitue une grave violation du droit international. La FBE restera unie avec l’Ordre National du Barreau Ukrainien et tous les collègues ukrainiens et les soutiendra à chaque occasion possible dans ces moments sombres et exprime l’espoir que cette attaque militaire non provoquée et injustifiée ne restera pas impunie.

DEADLINE EXTENDED – International LegalTech Competition: e-Access to Justice

We are pleased to announce that the organizers of the International Legal Tech Competition have decided to extend the deadline for submitting applications. Now we are waiting for your presentations/videos until 30 April 2022

 

We have the pleasure to invite all the members of the FBE Bar Associations to take part in the International LegalTech Competition organized by the FBE New Technologies Commission. The theme of this year’s edition of the competition will be “E-access to Justice”. The task of the contestants is to demonstrate how the digitalization of justice may increase the efficiency of the legal system and facilitate access to justice. 

 The purpose of the Competition is to promote the activities of the FBE and to encourage innovative thinking among lawyers through engaging them into implementation of modern technologies into the justice system to introduce innovative ways of functioning of the judicial and extrajudicial dispute resolution processes. Participants are encouraged to present not only theoretical possibilities of the use of modern technology in justice but also practical – even technical – implementation opportunities in this field. 

The contest will have two stages:

1st stage (online): submit your presentation/video by 30 April 2022

2nd stage (onsite): after the first stage, the jury will select finalists who will take part in the second stage of the competition that will take place during the FBE General Congress in Sofia (Bulgaria), 23-25 June 2022. In this stage, the finalists shall make their speeches to the jury. 

The Participant shall be an individual or a team up to three persons. The individual or at least one person in a team shall be lawyer representing Bar Association associated in the FBE; other team members can be IT specialists, programmers, UX experts or representatives of other areas. There is no age limitation.

Please find attached the invitation letter as well as the terms and conditions of the competition. 

If you have further questions about the competition, please contact the President of the Commission, Maria Dymitruk (mdymitruk@oirp.wroclaw.pl)
