We should not fear that technology will replace us, but learn to use it as a tool and discover how it can facilitate our daily work.

For a long time now we have been immersed in a volatile, complex, uncertain and ambiguous world, where the use of digital tools and artificial intelligence (AI) challenges our personal, social and economic life.

With the rise of artificial intelligence, the possible applications seem endless. This digital revolution is raising fears and questions, and consequently a change in our professional development, and we should focus our goal on not fearing that technology will replace us, but to use it as a tool and see how it can facilitate our daily work.

Since it is applied transversally at a global level, it is important to design mechanisms and standards applicable to all mankind. Clearly, in order to meet this objective, we must balance the digital gaps that exist today through assistance, promote the cooperation of nation states in order to generate access and education, respecting the cultural idiosyncrasies of each country and adapting to the new scenario of multilingualism necessary for its understanding, strengthening the inclusion of people in vulnerable situations such as women, dissidents, children, adolescents and the elderly, among others.

Training is necessary and it is necessary to incorporate both theoretical aspects with effective practical tools where the advantages, opportunities and potential dangers of the application of electronic media and artificial intelligence are analyzed.

On the one hand, it requires comprehensive training and interdisciplinary teamwork that allows us to understand data, automated learning and decision making. This will allow us to adapt to the changes that are generated in order to incorporate tools for our professional practice, where we are clearly going through a paradigm shift.

just, sustainable and equitable societies

The legal profession of this century has a great challenge that goes beyond the legal object, since it must have a role focused on the people who are experiencing the conflict, to manage it properly and this leads us to look beyond the approach of legal resolution.

Our professional practice will undoubtedly have to address a stage of training not only in AI, but in other forms of conflict management and resolution, and will require ongoing training to address new problems.

The use of AI and other digital tools has great potential; there are numerous opportunities and challenges that will allow us to strengthen and transform our professional practice. Priority should be given to essential values, these should undoubtedly be the principles that guide us to implement this mechanism of access to justice, where operators must be competent and committed to the use of digital mechanisms that make our intervention effective in addressing the conflict.
