Seminar: Future-proofing Businesses with AI, Proactive Law and Clear Communication

Warmly welcome all sustainability-oriented researchers and practitioners working with contracts or accessible language

The integration of artificial intelligence (AI) into various aspects of business promises to redefine the landscape of business law. 

This forward-looking seminar, co-organized by Aalto University School of Business's Business Law and Tampere University's JARGONFREE Research Group, will explore how we can use technology to decentralize law and make it more 'decent' (just, efficient, accessible and inclusive), and how we can achieve sustainability goals by applying a proactive approach and clear communication.
