AI continues to challenge law firms to find ways of developing and applying applications that will help reduce the cost of time-consuming and labor-consuming tasks for delivering legal services and improve efficiencies for the business of law. While still a mystery to many, AI is quickly finding its way into applications in law firms, including legal research, e-discovery, contract review, and document drafting; forecasting; data and legal analytics; timekeeping, billing, and collections; and intellectual property. In two one-hour sessions, CILS is hosting this virtual seminar to discuss two sides of AI: business and law practice.

In Session 1, The Business Side of AI, speakers will include:

  • Jared Jaskot, Legal AI and Chatbot Maker, Start Up Founder, Immigration Attorney
  • Brian Kuhn, Vice President Technology & Digital Consulting of Elevate
  • Emily Foges, Deloitte TBC

In Session 2, Law Practice and AI, Ryan will be speaking alongside:

  • Ulrike Till, Director of AI Policy at WIPO: Why AI Raises IP Policy Questions
  • Matt Hervey, Gowling WLG's UK Head of Artificial Intelligence: IP Strategy for AI
  • Ilda de Sousa, Kingsley Napley LLP: Implications of AI in Immigration
