Today I had the pleasure of participating in the Law, Justice & Development Week at the World Bank in its headquarters in Washington DC. My panel was focused on Technology, Data and Computation to Promote the Rule of Law. It was a great and meaningful conversation pointed toward substantive applications!
Tomorrow I will be speaking on the opening panel at the Advanced E-Discovery Institute @ Georgetown Law. The event draws hundreds of lawyers and technologists to Washington DC to discuss the latest advances in the rapidly evolving field of E-Discovery.
We offer some initial conversation of the application of Blockchain to legal services in our deck called Fin(Legal)Tech. Obvious starting points for the blockchain in law include – real estate transactions, smart contracting, asset verification and the enforcement of judgements, financial services regulatory work (such as we have discussed in our paper on resolution planning), etc. These ideas (together with other related and important technological developments) extend to large segments of transactional / regulatory legal space. The goal is to reduce needless friction – which is endemic to most processes ( and legal centered processes are particularly bad).
“Organized by Wolters Kluwer and Inkietos, and under the honorary presidency of His Majesty Felipe VI, the Legal Management Forum aims to serve as a space for reflection and knowledge of the main challenges and opportunities related to management in the legal profession.”
The global legal innovation conversation is growing and it was my pleasure to deliver the keynote address to the more than 400 in attendance here in Madrid.
As a member of the local organizing committee, I just wanted to mention that today is the final day for priority registration for the International Conference on Artificial Intelligence & Law in San Diego.
