This work aims to study the organizational and legal aspects of implementing the latest information technologies (IT), including artificial intelligence (AI), in the justice system. The study was based on a comprehensive approach that integrated analytical methods, comparative analysis, the case study method, and risk assessment.  It is determined that to improve the existing regulatory framework on the use of IT in the judicial system, it is necessary to regulate the following organizational and legal aspects: I. enshrine compliance with ethical principles, ensure information security, and define responsibility for the risks of using AI systems at the legislative level; II. develop unified standards and requirements for algorithms, models, and data used in AI systems that support the information activities of courts; IV. provide proper guarantees for respect for human rights, prevention of discrimination and bias in the use of AI in legal proceedings; V. ensure transparency of legal regulation, which will increase public confidence in the use of AI technologies in the judicial system; VI. ensure flexibility and adaptability of legal regulation, and promote harmonization of the regulatory framework at the international level through the adoption of generally accepted principles and unified standards for the use of AI systems.
