Accepted Paper:

Decision-making about decision-making: talks and regulations about automation and artificial intelligence systems in the Brazilian Judicial System.  
Camila Balsa (Federal University of ParanĂ¡ - Brasil)

Paper short abstract:

In Brazil, the use of AI in justice recently increased. Now, different professionals are debating, and effectively making material changes. This paper will address lectures, courses, and regulations created from these discussions.

Paper long abstract:

Projects and actions to implement artificial intelligence and automation within the Brazilian judicial system have grown exponentially in the last decade. From The General Data Protection Law (LGPD), inspired by the European General Data Protection Regulation, enacted in 2018 and fully effective in 2021, there was a profusion of seminars, congresses, and lectures on these new mechanisms in Judiciary and law firms. Such events, highlighted by their heterogeneity (members of academia, corporations, or institutions), mark the gradual insertion of these technologies and the criticism on how they could be applied, highlighting the infrastructures involved in modifying the legal universe. Furthermore, many speakers are making these regulations and systems (almost simultaneously to the debates).

Currently, the Superior Courts already use automated systems, most of them to filter repetitive lawsuits and appeals requirements. In the Courts of First Instance, there are some projects in progress, ranging from blocked amounts to automated decisions in simple processes, for example. In law offices, many firms use mechanisms such as jurimetrics and predictive justice in preparation for their petitions.

In this paper, I try to draw a brief overview of the regulation, creation of projects, and availability of new systems by the judiciary system, law, and other institutions, in addition to the legislative changes and debates in other countries, which have reflected on the discussions in Brazil. Later, as the core of this ethnography, I will point out the events that took place in 2020-2021, in person or online.
