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 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.

In my opinion, the topics are very general. and Iwould like to know more specific topics, for example about different kind of legislations.

The course content was not only up-to-date but also forward-thinking, encouraging students to engage with cutting-edge developments and anticipate future challenges. One of the standout features was the incorporation of practical scenarios and hands-on exercises. These components allowed me to apply theoretical knowledge to real-world situations, enhancing my problem-solving skills and reinforcing the practical relevance of the course content. The course's emphasis on critical analysis was particularly noteworthy. It encouraged independent thinking, challenging students to consider the ethical, legal, and societal implications of AI technologies. This approach not only deepened my understanding but also equipped me with a valuable skill set for navigating the complex landscape of AI and law. In conclusion, the AI & Law course exceeded my expectations in every aspect.

The course is well designed. As a legal officer in civil service I found in the course a very good introduction to the major issues evolving around the development of AI, the interplay of AI and Public Law and IP Law , the influence of AI on digital healthcare, the various complex issues pertaining AI in the work place and the impact on competition law and more. I particularly found extremely helpful the sources provided in the Course syllabuses that helped me dive into more complex issues and concepts. It was a great privilege to follow a course offered by a renowned university. Keep up the great work!

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.

A great course for learning the fundamentals of AI in the legal field. I'm not a legal expert of any degree, but even I learnt quite a bit from the course videos and the supplementary reading material. The quizzes could be made a bit more difficult though, to be honest; I was able to do 3 of them without even watching the lectures. Still 5 stars for the good content.

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.
