The EU AI Act will be one of the most influential pieces of legislation globally. It contains a complex and far-reaching set of regulations which will affect organisations in almost every jurisdiction.

With fines of up to 7% annual global turnover, the risks of contravention are serious, and it is likely that organisations will want to invest significant amounts in compliance.

Lawyers have a major role to play in helping their clients to understand and ultimately to comply with the EU AI Act’s highly technical requirements.

Join AI expert Jacob Turner in this new virtual classroom seminar who will provide you with a basic overview of the EU’s AI Act and how this will apply in practice.
