Like many types of legal technology, we know that AI solutions are not “push-button” and require a significant investment of time and human capital in addition to financial resources. Attend this ILTA session to hear from a panel of experts designing and managing successful AI projects in corporate legal departments and law firms.

The panel will share case studies covering the lifecycle of an AI solution, from assessing contractual risk issues to upstream/downstream customization of the tools to developing internal champions who will ensure adoption. The session will conclude with a future-focused discussion on other ways AI may gain ground in the legal field.

This program was recorded as part of ALM's Legalweek Conference on January 29th, 2019.
