Description

AI is huge, and it’s got everybody talking, but few have really done it right. As AI 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, record keeping, tracking, transaction switching, and more. This would impact the structure of the legal department as these technologies could theoretically replace the roles of interns and young lawyers, transforming the roles of records managers, and even information governance execs on a legal team.

In this session, we’ll provide use cases and demonstrate how AI, analytics, and other types of tech will impact your legal department.

This program was recorded as part of ALM and Corporate Counsel's 19th Annual SuperConference held on May 22nd, 2019.
