Many organizations are already utilizing AI and Blockchain technology within their legal and operations departments, but often times, the full potential of this and other technologies is untapped. AI, Blockchain and IoT are examples of advanced technology that can make the legal services that are entwined with daily operations management, like supply chain management, much faster & cheaper – from contract reviews to logistics planning, transparency, compliance, etc – but few understand how these technologies can be utilized to really improve the legal services and make them better. Tech can potentially be harnessed to flag legal issues as they are created, provide real-time guidance in tools that lawyers already use, and to help understand the real-world effects of legal documents more clearly.

In this session, panelists will explore use-cases for automation efficiency and share how these technologies are enabling them to manage at scale, and focus more on value-add opportunities for their departments.

This program was recorded as part of ALM and Corporate Counsel's 19th Annual SuperConference held on May 21st, 2019.
