Artificial Intelligence (AI) can become a powerful tool for resolving inheritance and asset division disputes. By leveraging advanced algorithms and machine learning techniques, AI can offer unprecedented efficiency and accuracy in addressing these complex issues.
The CREA 2 - CONFLICT RESOLUTION WITH EQUITATIVE ALGORITHMS project has been at the forefront of pioneering research in this area, seeking innovative solutions that can assist consumers and legal professionals in resolving these issues through algorithms based on game theory.
The potential of AI in this context is immense, as shown in the preview video. However, addressing and mitigating biases and ensuring inclusivity in these approaches is crucial. Due to these complexities, the project results are not yet ready for public use and will undergo further development in the coming years. You can view the discussions and presentations from the project's final conference through this link.
The CREA 2 project is the natural successor to the original CREA initiative and is implemented through a European partnership. The consortium includes Vrije Universiteit Brussel (BE) as the lead partner, along with University of Naples Federico II (IT), University of Ljubljana (SI), University of Vilnius (LT), University of Zagreb (HR), Tallinn University of Technology (EE), Seraphin Innovation (FR), Adiconsum (IT) and the Fédération des Barreaux d'Europe (FR).
Funded by the European program Justice 2021-2027 under the call for "Action grants to support National or Transnational e-Justice projects JUST-2021-EJUSTICE," the CREA 2 - CONFLICT RESOLUTION WITH EQUITATIVE ALGORITHMS project continues to push the boundaries of how AI can be utilized in the legal domain, aiming to create equitable and effective solutions for dispute resolution.
Next month, we will provide a detailed message containing step-by-step instructions for utilizing the e-handbook, along with a direct link to our official website, ensuring you have all the necessary resources and information about this tool.

Speaker: Prof. Zeynep Ayata, Jean Monnet Chair on Digital Law


Regulating digital platforms within the digital single market presents a multifaceted challenge balancing innovation, competition, and consumer protection. The European Union's approach emphasizes fostering a level playing field while ensuring fair competition, data protection, and safeguarding fundamental rights. This involves measures such as the Digital Services Act and the Digital Markets Act, which aim to enhance transparency, accountability, and user trust, while also addressing concerns related to market dominance, unfair practices, and harmful content. By harmonizing regulations across member states, the EU seeks to promote a cohesive digital ecosystem that empowers businesses, fosters innovation, and prioritizes the well-being of users in the digital space.

Within our 🇪🇺Jean Monnet Chair project "Digital Europe and Future Integration", Dr. David Ramiro Troitiño organised a conference in Manila.


The main takeaway from Lawyers Union conference at TalTech ➡️Legal education needs refreshment and market orientation but the core principles should be safeguarded. New legal market will introduce new legal positions and interdisciplinarity becomes a key for success. By prof. Tanel Kerikmäe "education provided should be ahead of the practice".

Our Story

More and more students have chosen to study law at TalTech, and our graduates have found work both in Estonia and abroad. Today, ca 800 students study law at TalTech, ca 200 of them in English. Our priorities in research and study are:

- Law & Technology: The development of information technology and innovation are priorities for Estonia, thus it is also important to develop a legal framework that supports them, as well as train specialist lawyers. TalTech is the best place for research and study in the area of Law & Technology.
- European law: There are no comparable institutions in Estonia in terms of breadth and scope of EU law related research and studies. More than 10 years of continuous development (with the support of Jean Monnet grants from the European Commission) of the study and research activities related to European Union law have resulted in not only providing education in EU law to Estonian students, but also in bringing to Estonia many foreign students (including students from Georgia).
- State and municipal law: Students get basic foundations about criminal and private law as well as more in depth knowledge of state and administrative law, with special emphasis on municipal law, planning and construction law and environmental law.
