Legal Innovation: AI and a New Normal for the Business and Practice of Law

Disruption from artificial intelligence is the “new normal” within the legal industry. Law firms and corporate law departments are increasingly using AI to augment front and back-office operations. Although adoption of automating simple, repetitive processes with AI is becoming more common, many law firms and companies do not understand how AI aligns with their business model or what to expect from this technology. They face challenges defining a business-centric digital strategy for AI initiatives. With new market entrants disrupting both law firm incumbents and legacy technology providers, the need for leaders to establish a clear digital strategy has never been more important.

This session will provide insight into best-practices for defining the elements of a successful digital strategy for AI. How do lawyers prioritize a starting place? What critical factors should you consider in building or buying AI? How can you scale AI to the benefit of your organization, clients, and your customers while planning for future change? This session will consider these and other issues, beginning with an a description of AI and details on how it has already transformed the market for legal services.

  • Legal Moneyball: Maps to Smarter Legal Services for Clients Recorded: Jun 18 2019 49 mins
    Edward J. Walters, Factcase | Zach Warren, Legal Tech News
    Data analytics seems like a tool for large firms with data scientists and geeks – but data analytics are really just reports of what has happened. They are like maps for litigation.

    Data analytics doesn’t have to be intimidating, and in fact, it can level the playing field in litigation, helping small firms to harness the kinds of resources that large firms do.

    In this session, Fastcase CEO Ed Walters (and editor of the new book, "Data-Driven Law") will give an introduction to data analytics – what they are, and how to use analytics to make better strategic decisions and to win more cases.

    You don’t need a security clearance to read these emails and the lessons learned will help you prepare for successful investigations and eDiscovery. Get hands-on with specific, practical guidance to address your next investigation whether it involves a single device or terabytes of data.

    Topics will include:
    - Crafting modern policies that address contemporary challenges around InfoGov, BYOD, and shadow IT
    - Collecting and analyzing digital evidence from routine emails to new sources like voice, video, and chat
    - Understanding how communication maps, metadata visualization, and other advanced analytics like phrase analysis surface key evidence
    - Leveraging AI to automatically organize documents, find keywords, and automate the heavy lift of document review

    This webinar features expert attorneys from law firms and legal technology software developers who will share their best practices, war stories, and lessons learned from conducting technology-assisted investigations.

  • The 21st Century Lawyer: Adapting to a Tech-Driven Legal World Recorded: Jun 18 2019 46 mins
    Kevin Miller, CEO, Legal Sifter
    The core job of attorneys is changing dramatically due to technology. The evolution of legal tech began with products that provided greater efficiencies in the management of routine tasks such as billing, research, and client communication. Today, it involves technologies such as advanced software and coding that have significantly enhanced legal capabilities. These include AI, which allows lawyers to quickly review large volumes of documents and digital material in multiple languages and dialects, resulting in enormous time and cost-savings.

    Today, advanced technologies are more embedded in the practice of law. As a result, law firms and corporate legal departments are faced with a need to change: embrace technology or risk losing a competitive advantage. Lawyers must be tech savvy unlike ever before.

    How can lawyers adapt to this new environment?
    What is the proper balance between manual processes and those that are automated by technology?
    What can law firms do culturally to ensure that lawyers can leverage technology to work more efficiently?

    This webinar will highlight how forces such as AI, predictive coding, and data analytics are reshaping the practice of law. It will focus on ways in which attorneys can be empowered to use technology to achieve greater outcomes. It will also highlight how and why it is critical for law firms to bring in the right people to ensure that advanced technologies can be optimally deployed to deliver legal services.
