Innovative Legal Issues Likely to Arise from Artificial Intelligence and the Internet of Things Writing Competition
Fridges that automatically order items which are about to run out, smart houses which respond to voice commands, self-driving cars, and unmanned planes tackling fires are no longer a thing of the future.

The new generation of lawyers will face, conceptualize, unlock and potentially resolve many of these issues which are new, complex and multi-faceted.
