The Kain Knight team

Kain Knight, a leading firm of Costs Lawyers, held their own warm-up to the forthcoming World Cup 2014 by inviting several leading law firms and barrister’s chambers to participate in a friendly, though not always, knock-out football tournament in “trendy” Shoreditch, London.

On an exceptionally cold evening last Friday,  eight teams took to the astro turf for the glory of winning the Kain Knight trophy and, after a very hard fought final between Slater & Gordon and Collyer Bristow, Slater & Gordon were victorious at 4-3.

Matthew Kain, Director of Kain Knight, said “following the success of this event, it is intended to make this an annual event and we look forward to welcoming teams again in 2015”.

Algorithms and the law

Jeremy Barnett

Our aim is to start a discussion in the legal profession on the legal impact of algorithms on firms, software developers, insurers, and lawyers. In a longer paper, we consider whether algorithms should have a legal personality, an issue which will likely provoke an intense debate between those who believe in regulation and those who believe that ‘code is law’. In law, companies have the rights and obligations of a person. Algorithms are rapidly emerging as artificial persons: a legal entity that is not a human being but for certain purposes is legally considered to be a natural person. Intelligent algorithms will increasingly require formal training, testing, verification, certification, regulation, insurance, and status in law.
