Description

A.I. is huge, and it’s got everybody talking, but few have really done it right. As A.I. continues to take center stage in terms of emerging tech that will impact the legal space, robots and machines can be utilized to complete time-consuming and tedious tasks such as data collecting, searching records, fact verification, etc -- which will impact the jobs of many interns and junior lawyers. So how will the professional structure accommodate for this shift? As the technology frees up time and makes the profession run more smoothly, does this mean that junior lawyers will be able to take on the tasks of more mid-level executives? And will mid-level executives in turn, find themselves taking on more senior-level tasks? In this session, we’ll explore the possibilities of how tech -- not just A.I. -- will impact the legal industry going forward.
