The course gives you a good overview of how AI can change our legal environment and perspectives, being presented as offering better solutions to problems but also practical and potential threats if not regulated correctly. The quizes were in my opinion a bit to easy, but the course aims to give you an introduction. Some of the recommended reading materials are very good.

It's really an informative course, the topics covered throughout the lectures really shed light on the base understanding of AI technology and how it affects various aspects of Law. For a beginner like me, it's really a stepping stone to an interdisciplinary topic like this.

It was good and informative. The basics of AI have been well taught and explained. However, it could have been a more detailed one.

Beneficial and insightful information! I would recommend this course to get a general understanding of AI and how it's linked to the law (it doesn't dive deep into specific legislation but rather into social issues and more broad cases/ subjects). It raises very interesting questions but they are still unanswered so it's more a theoretical and informational course rather than a practical one.

If you take the reading seriously it might take you longer to complete than what is suggested in each section, I also recommend doing the legal essay.

Although the contents covered are rigorous and comprehensive, there is a lack of greater depth in some of the dilemmas presented in the lectures.

The lectures are more theoretical, and it would be more interesting to talk about practical issues. At the same time, the subtitles do not accurately reflect the professors' conversations.

i had prepared the article for obtaining the honours status. But when I login again, the course is completed and the completion certificate is issued. Is there any possibility of submitting my article for getting honours status.

This was an incredibly practical and useful course! Whenever I study the intersection of law and artificial intelligence, I'm tempted to question what I'm interested in because there's always something new and interesting to learn. Among all the courses, this course gave me a good understanding of how artificial intelligence affects society and law in different ways. The course covers a wide range of topics, from the basics of AI hardware and software to how AI can be used in various areas of the law and what legal questions this use might raise. Topics discussed include the connection between AI and law in the context of: legal responsibility, law-making, law-enforcing, criminal law, the medical sector and intellectual property law.

This course has provided me with valuable insights into the intersections between artificial intelligence and the legal system. I learned about AI's ethical and legal implications, including data privacy, bias, and accountability, and how they impact various industries and society as a whole.

Very interesting course with a range of aspects of AI covered. There was flexibility in the choice of topic for the Honours essay, which I liked but the essay submission interface wasn't as good as in other courses. The multiple-choice assessments covered the key points but without difficulty.

The course provided a greater insight in understanding the role of AI in Legal administration. Though, there are no time tested solutions for many problems at hand. It is an eye opener and gave a clear road map for what needs to be done.
