Legal Innovation at Work: Demystifying AI for the Business and Practice of Law
Disruption from artificial intelligence (AI) is now the “new normal” within the legal industry. More law firms and law departments are using AI to augment front and back-office operations. While adoption of automating simple, repetitive processes with AI is becoming more common, many legal organizations don’t know what to expect from AI or how it aligns with their business model. They face challenges defining a business-centric digital strategy for AI initiatives. With new market entrants disrupting both law firm incumbents and legacy technology providers, the need for leaders to establish a clear digital strategy has never been more important.
Together, we will consider current best-practices for defining the elements of a successful digital strategy for AI. How do you prioritize a starting place? What critical factors should you consider in building or buying AI? How can you scale AI to the benefit of your organization, your clients, and your customers while planning for future change? We will consider these and other issues, beginning with an updated description of AI and a summary of how it has already and irrevocably transformed the market for legal services.
