Yesterday was the 5th Annual Future Law Conference at Stanford CodeX. As always, it was an exciting day to see the best in cutting edge technology (including chatbots, predictive analytics and rules based A.I.). I moderated a morning panel entitled The Perils and Promise of Predictive Analytics in Law. Overall – it is clear that the community is growing both domestically and abroad.
Thousands of attendees and billions of dollars of commerce on display here at the International Legal Technology Association Conference ( #ILTACON 2016). I was excited to provide the Day 2 Keynote this morning!
“Our exclusive audience will be a deliberate mix of private practice lawyers, corporate legal champions, public sector standouts, senior knowledge and technology personnel, representatives from the emerging and evolving areas of legal pricing, process improvement, project management and service delivery enhancement, – and educators from leading institutions. We believe that at events such as this one, the best knowledge sharing comes from a delegate community whose job titles have been “mixed up to fix it up”.
We’re pleased to confirm that we have assembled a unique speaking faculty to bring you lessons from both inside and outside of the legal industry. These voices represent consumers and suppliers of legal services, scholars, and individuals dedicated to social justice.
Representatives from a vast range of organizations will present on the day, sharing their experiences on a variety of successes and failures. Delegates will share insights on emerging trends and issues, discuss real successes and failures, and absorb opportunities to transform the practice of law. We aim to give you the inspiration to do something different when you return to work.” Learn More Here – http://chicago.jandersdean.com/
