Event Information

It is anticipated that advanced driver-assistance technology will be commonplace by 2020 and that truly autonomous vehicles will be seen on our roads by 2025. In recent months more and more companies have announced plans to bring driverless cars to UK roads sooner rather than later – but is the law ready?
In this webinar, Bristows’ experts Anna Cook, Marc Dautlich, Vikram Khurana, and Michaela Herron will examine the legal issues arising in relation to driverless cars and discuss whether the existing relevant legal frameworks are fit for purpose. In particular, they will provide insight into issues relating to cyber, data and artificial Intelligence (AI). They will also consider the existing product liability framework and discuss the potential pitfalls and issues with the existing regime. They will further consider the new insurance position for these vehicles as set out in the Automated and Electric Vehicles Act 2018 and what this means for the insurance industry. Finally, there will be a discussion of the key issues arising from the joint consultation paper on automated vehicles which was recently published by the English and Scottish law commissions. At the end of the presentation, they will be available to answer your questions.
This talk is aimed at in-house counsel in the automotive and AI industries and insurers, particularly those working in both automotive or products insurance. To join us, please click here.
