Biography

Cari Hyde-Vaamonde is an experienced lawyer and court advocate fascinated by the potential for code and AI to reform how law and justice function. She first studied Law at King’s College London and, following a scholarship from the Inner Temple Society, was called to the Bar in 2006. After practising as a lawyer in diverse fields including technology, and specialising in court advocacy, she became increasingly interested in systematic analysis and research. Her focus on research in the field culminated in a UKRI 4-year award to research the impacts of AI in justice settings at King's College London. She is engaged in several interdisciplinary collaborations and has been embedded in the Alan Turing Institute for the academic year 2022-2023.

Cari is co-convener for the Innovations In Judging Collaborative Research Network for the Law and Society Association, chairing and acting as discussant on panels in the 2023 meeting in San Juan, Puerto Rico (1-4 June 2023). She has presented research at numerous conferences including convening and acting as chair at the Royal Anthropological Institute: Anthropology, AI and the Future of Human Society conference panel on Law and AI (6 -10 June 2022, available after the event) as well as the International Conference on Artificial Intelligence and Law.
