Lucy McCormick is a Double Winner

Many congratulations to commercial barrister Lucy McCormick, Class of 2003, who won two prestigious awards this week in recognition of her legal expertise in tech regulation.

Lucy, from Henderson Chambers, picked up the gongs at the CogX AI Awards at the O2 arena, which honours the finest in AI, technology and innovation from across the globe, for her work in the field of autonomous vehicles and Artificial Intelligence.

The first was in the category of ‘Outstanding Achievements and Research in Tech Regulation’. The second was the ‘Peace and Justice Strong Institutions Award’, which recognises the “contributions of a key player in the tech field who has shown sustained commitment to responsible and cutting-edge innovation, as well as mentorship and leadership within the community”.

The ceremony celebrated the innovators and change-makers who are “helping us to get the next 10 years right” and was attended by Michelle Donelan, the Secretary of State for Science, Innovation and Technology.

Lucy says: “I was delighted to be recognised for my work on autonomous vehicles and AI. I first developed an interest in the area in 2015 when it was very niche, and it has been a pleasure to see it grow into the thriving industry it is now. Every country wants to attract autonomous vehicle development, and having a clear legislative scheme that minimises legal uncertainty is one of the very best ways to do that.”

She is a co-author of The Law and Autonomous Vehicles, the first major legal text on the subject.  She is also a contributor to the leading legal textbook, Law of Artificial Intelligence, encompassing both embodied and unembodied AI. Lucy has also liaised extensively with the Law Commissions, both in her own right and on behalf of the Bar Council, in relation to its consultation on automated vehicle law.

In addition, she lectures nationally and internationally, with engagements including the European Robotics Forum, the Future of Transportation World Congress, the Society for Computers and Law, the Government Legal Department, and London Tech Week.

Lucy is ranked in the Chambers and Partners UK Bar Guide for both Information Technology and Product Liability. It says: “Lucy McCormick is phenomenal at communicating with clients. She really cuts through complex cases in an incisive way and gets her point across.”
