The LCO’s multiyear AI, ADM and the Justice System project brings together policymakers, legal professionals, technologists, NGOs and community members to discuss the development, deployment, regulation and impact of artificial intelligence (AI), automated decision-making (ADM) and algorithms on access to justice, human rights, and due process.
The LCO is considering possible reforms to Ontario’s Environmental Bill of Rights and other contemporary approaches to strengthening environmental accountability in Ontario. Issues include the desirability, feasibility and enforceability of legislating a substantive right to a healthy environment, the responsibilities corresponding to such a right, and proposals for enhancing environmental access to justice.
The LCO's Criminal AI Lifecycle Project is the first legal and policy reform project in Canada to review how artificial intelligence (AI) impacts each stage in a criminal justice matter. Our goal is to help government and different criminal justice sector institutions anticipate the risks and benefits of AI on access to justice, due process, human rights, and civil liberties; and to help these institutions identify and adopt concrete, practical and complimentary legal and policy reform responses to the shared challenges of AI.
The LCO’s Digital Marketplace Initiative is collaborating with leading academics in Canada in an innovative, data-driven project to identify law reform options related to so-called “click to consent” or “terms of service” (ToS) contracts.
