Amendments to the commentary on Principle g) of the CCBE’s Charter of Core Principles of the European Legal Profession approved

The proposed amendments to the commentary on Principle g) of the CCBE’s Charter of Core Principles of the European Legal Profession, which addresses the lawyer’s professional competence, were approved by the Plenary Session on 17 May 2019.

Considering the use of artificial intelligence (AI) and other relevant technologies by lawyers, a new sentence has now been added to the commentary on Principle g) of the Charter stating that a lawyer should be aware of the benefits and risks of using relevant technologies in his or her practice. Moreover, some further changes were made to the original text of the commentary.

The updated commentary on Principle g) is included in the 2019 edition of the Charter of Core Principles of the European Legal Profession and the Code of Conduct for European Lawyers, available on the CCBE’s website.
