Today I am in Oslo giving the Keynote Address at the University of Oslo – Network Analysis and Machine Learning in Law Conference. Some very cool papers have been will be presented –https://www.jus.uio.no/
It was a big week here in Australia – I took a few individual meetings, spoke at a couple law firms and delivered the Keynote at the Chilli IQ Lawtech Summit in Brisbane/Noosa ( https://www.lawtechsummit.com.au ) as well as the FLIP Legal Tech Conference in Sydney hosted by the Law Society of New South Wales (https://www.lawsociety.com.au/…/advoc…/flip/flip-conference/ )
It was nice to have coverage of my talk in Sydney in the Australian – the largest circulation newspaper for Australia!
I am happy to join the Council at the ABA Center for Innovation. This morning I had a chance to lead a session for the incoming class of ABA Innovation Fellows – thanks to Chase Hertel and Sarah Glassmeyer for inviting me to participate in the workshop!
Our LexPredict Team is excited to announce the new ContraxSuite User Interface – See Press Release < HERE >
ContraxSuite has a wide range of user types across our various legal service delivery customers. Relevant users include legal data scientists, power users in legal information technology, professional review teams at legal process outsourcers, contract review units in corporate legal departments, as well as associates and partners in law firms. While the existing ContraxSuite user interface will still serve as the interface for our data scientist community, the new UI is designed to serve the needs of a much broader community of users.
Eric Detterman – VP and Global Head of Products and Solution Engineering at LexPredict noted, “The new ContraxSuite User Interface delivers the bells and whistles that many users expect from a modern app or software tool, including dynamic menus, helpful dialog boxes, and an easy, intuitive design.”
It was a full house for the Block Legal Tech Conference at Illinois Tech – Chicago Kent College of Law. Thanks to our speakers, sponsors and delegates!
“Monax announced that eleven organizations are partnering with the Agreements Network (AN) which turns ‘legal processes into products’. The network enables people to create legally compliant agreements from templates with a few clicks.
The project deserves attention because of the involvement of Monax which is known for contributing the code to Hyperledger Burrow.
The AN announced it’s working with law firms BakerHostetler, LegalBono and ErdosIP. Additionally, tech firm partners include Clause, Crowdcube, LexPredict, Libra, Mattereum, Monax, Rymedi, TransparentNode and Wolfram Blockchain Labs.”
