Luke Chambers

Luke graduated with a BSc (Hons) in Computer Science with Artificial Intelligence from Northumbria University, before studying a Space Law (LLM) at Northumbria Law School, specialising in the law of AI and algorithms. He is currently a PhD (Law) candidate at Northumbria University where he is researching how AI is used within police intelligence and in criminal evidence from both a technological and a legal perspective. He currently works within the criminal justice system as an Appropriate Adult - an advisor to vulnerable detained persons within custody suites.

He was shortlisted by The Telegraph for their STEM award in 2017 and 2018 for his AI projects, and won the Grey Society’s legal writing contest in 2020.

Luke has a particular interest in the law of AI, and how AI is used within our justice system - especially how it affects vulnerable sections of society.
