Legal + Technology = LegalTech
Where are we going?
Information technology is spreading into ever new areas. They do not bypass the functioning of lawyers and the law itself, both private and public. To this end, a scientific consortium had to be set up to construct a scientific framework for LegalTech.

Internet and New Technologies Law
"Lawyers will not disappear. What will change is the way they function and the procedures they follow. Just as doctors have not disappeared despite the introduction of technological tools to support and sometimes replace their work (including advanced AI). However, they had to learn to use them."
dr hab. Dariusz Szostek, Prof. UŚ – team leader.
"The transformation of the judiciary is a natural process, occurring sometimes, however, too slowly. Today, in the world of new technologies, there is a need to adapt the judiciary to new realities and social expectations. Traditional adjudication of cases reveals more and more problems and becomes ineffective".
Prof. dr hab. Mariusz Załucki
"Clients, at least for now, are not going to hire robot lawyers, but this does not mean that lawyers can afford to be passive and wait passively for change."
