Autonomous Vehicles and Practical Liability Issues

We are very pleased to welcome Lucy McCormick of Henderson chambers to present the second episode of the Tech Dispute Network’s ‘Need to Know Basis’ podcast series on liability issues related to autonomous vehicles. 

Liability issues related to the output of various forms of AI are arguably among the most significant challenges currently facing lawyers, and no specific area is more of immediate relevance than that of driverless cars.

For over a century, driving has been one of the world’s leading sources of both employment and accidents, profoundly affecting both society and the law. Indeed, the business of determining responsibility for the damage caused by driver mishaps may very well be the most common public point of contact with the world of civil disputes. However, as technology pushes people out of the driver’s seat, new ways of looking at motoring liability will be required.

We are very fortunate to have Lucy McCormick of Henderson chambers to guide us through the key issues here. One of the bar’s most sought-after juniors for technology work, Lucy is also leading expert in this field, about which she has lectured extensively and authored a textbook for practitioners.
