Print This Post

14 March 2014


The Compl-i team is delighted to invite you to the first in a series of breakfast seminars to be held at our London office on 9 April, focusing on topical aspects of regulatory risk and compliance for the legal profession.

We are pleased to confirm that Marcia Boys, a Regulatory Manager within the Supervision Directorate of the SRA, will be the guest speaker at this inaugural seminar, providing an overview of the SRA’s approach to supervision, including:

  • Compliance with the regulatory objectives;
  • The regulator’s perception of your key risks;
  • What constitutes a material breach; and
  • How the SRA measures your regulatory performance.

In addition, delegates will hear from our specialists in the field of regulatory compliance and will be given the opportunity to share opinions, ideas and experiences.

The seminar is aimed at those in key positions of responsibility (including COLPs and COFAs) within law firms.

There is no charge for the seminar, however places will be restricted to facilitate discussion.

To reserve your space please contact robyn.maddocks@weightmans.com or click here.

Registration will be 8.15am for 8.30am start and the discussions are expected to last for approximately 1-1.5 hours. CPD points will be available for this event.

We look forward to seeing you there!

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.
