Pitt Law Professor Kevin Ashley receives CodeX Prize
University of Pittsburgh School of Law Professor Kevin Ashley, also a senior scientist at the Learning Research and Development Center, received the second annual CodeX Prize.
The Stanford Center for Legal Informatics announced the recipients at this year’s CodeX FutureLaw 2022 Conference, which brought together researchers, engineers, entrepreneurs, lawyers, investors and policymakers worldwide to focus on how technology is changing the legal profession and the law itself and how these changes affect us all.
Edwina Rissland, University of Massachusetts Amherst, also received the award, which acknowledged the pair’s work on case-based reasoning in automated legal analysis and the development of the HYPO system while Ashley was at the University of Massachusetts for precedent-based legal rationale.
The CodeX Prize is given to individuals for a noteworthy contribution to computational law — an idea, article, book, computer application, computer tool, organization, etc., that has had a significant and enduring positive impact on the field.
