AI in the Future of Law & Business – Belfast, Jan 23

The Legal Innovation Centre and the Ulster Business School are hosting a half-day conference on 23 January, 2020, on ‘AI in the Future of Law and Business’. 

Belfast has rapidly become a centre of excellence for tech-enabled legal work and several major law firms have set up bases there. Big Four firm PwC also has a legal group in Belfast.

The conference will focus on how innovative solutions are transforming legal and financial services. Speakers will share their insights into how technology is used now and will be in the future, in the fields of law, business and finance. 

The organisers said the audience will include members of the financial and legal community, alongside attendees from banks, and members of the Department for Justice, the Courts Service, and Law Society.

The speakers will include senior leaders from the legal sector, such as Angela Clist, Head of the Legal Services Centre at Allen & Overy in Belfast, and Lauren McCoy, Director, Associate General Counsel, Citi. Artificial Lawyer also will be supporting the event.

Jane Holloway, Director of the Legal Innovation Centre, said: ‘With an influx of international legal and financial service providers to Belfast, firms are embracing technology to develop innovative solutions for clients’ problems, making the delivery of professional services quicker, cheaper and more accurate.
