The University of Alberta’s Law Students for Human Rights is teaming up with the Canadian Red Cross to host a conference on Thursday, November 9, 2023 from 12:00 p.m. to 2:00pm at the Faculty of Law in Edmonton. This conference will bring together a panel of expert speakers to discuss the growing usage of artificial intelligence (AI) and its evolving relationship with human rights at home and abroad, avenues for regulation, and how these concerns intersect with international humanitarian law. This may include how AI has been used in executing armed conflict, its presence in domestic and international legal administration systems, and its use as an analytical tool in regards to intervention methods in conflict zones. There will be individual talks and a panel where audience members are encouraged to ask questions and engage in a dialogue on the issues.

Following the conference, an informal networking coffee event will take place in the evening on Thursday, November 9, 2023 from 5:30 pm to 7:00 pm to allow participants the opportunity to mingle with the speakers and UofA Law professors, all experts in their fields.

By registering for the afternoon event, you are guaranteed lunch for the afternoon session. The evening portion has limited availability, and attending requires registration.

For Alberta lawyers, consider including this conference as a CPD learning activity in your annual Continuing Professional Development Plan.
