Abstract

Everyone operating in the field of law contributes to its evolution. That applies not only to judges, but also to advisors and academics who, collectively, form and inform our understanding of what the law is. If Artificial Intelligence is used for legal tasks, for example for providing legal advice, it may therefore also influence said evolution. This article explores, based on preliminary experiments and assessments, whether that influence exists and if it could be detrimental to the evolution of the law. In particular, it shall be investigated whether there is a risk that Artificial Intelligence could unintendedly change the law without human influence, therefore effectively creating rules governing human society with insufficient human control.
