    DescriptionThirty years on from the advent of the internet, a technological revolution is profoundly changing the society we live and work in. Once the province of dusty tomes and silk gowns, the legal profession is by no means immune to this accelerated change. Blockchain, artificial intelligence (AI), machine learning and pattern recognition algorithms all herald a tectonic shift in how many aspects of the legal system will function in the future. This year, academics in Queen’s University Law School, Dr Pauline McBride and Dr Ciarán O’Kelly, have created a new module to enable students to effectively engage with several of these emerging technologies: ‘Computational Methods and Skills’.
