‘Law Tech – Is it worth the risk?’
Legal departments are facing increasing pressure to do more with ever tighter resources, take on new responsibilities and contribute as a business partner to strategy.
Many legal departments are only now beginning to use Law Tech in a concerted way to help automate litigation, compliance and ‘business as usual’ work, and to become more connected to other departments.
While some of the rewards such as cost and efficiency are understood, it is becoming apparent that the risks associated with Law Tech are less so.
A light is now being shone on risks such as selecting the right software in rapidly evolving industries, along with ethical and legal issues associated with artificial intelligence being used as the primary basis for making legal decisions.
EY Law Partner Matthew Kellett will be chairing the panel discussion. The panel will include Rob Dinning, who recently joined EY Riverview and prior to that was General Counsel, Operations & Technology at Barclays, Dr Tara Chittenden from The Law Society, who is Technology and Learning Intelligence Officer there and has led research into legal tech and AI, and finally Artificial Lawyer Founder Richard Tromans.
Join us to explore a user’s perspective of these controversial issues.
