Gain insights into the extraterritorial implications of the upcoming European AI Act and its impact on the international practice of law.

This concise, 3-hour workshop is tailored to equip both EU and non-EU lawyers with essential insights into the emerging EU AI legislation, which is poised to influence international legal practices profoundly.

Even though the European AI Act has not yet been implemented, its ultimate extraterritorial reach and potentially onerous fines means that it will impact not only EU-based but also non-EU AI providers or deployers engaging with the EU market.

The session will provide a thorough overview of the proposed law’s structure, focusing on pivotal definitions and categorizations of AI systems under EU law. It will delve into the challenges and compliance obligations that EU and non-EU lawyers may need to manage when their practices intersect with EU jurisdictions. By the end of this workshop, participants will be better prepared to strategically address the legal intricacies presented by the European AI Act in their global operations, ensuring compliance and adeptly navigating the international legal landscape.
