Understanding Litigation Technology Trends

Date / Time

Venue

This is a virtual event, accessible online and over the phone. Access instructions will be provided after registration.

Description

Technology can help lawyers work more efficiently, but there is a lack of understanding about the technology available to assist lawyers in competently serving their clients. And when machine learning is implicated, concerns about the “black box” and implicit bias are raised. Practitioners need to understand the extent to which technology can assist their daily litigation practice and must know the questions to ask about the limits and benefits of the technology in order to comply with their ethical obligations.Join Bloomberg Law for this 60-minute webinar that will incorporate specific examples in an in-depth look at how to evaluate litigation-focused technology offerings from an ethics perspective.

Educational Objectives
See how technology is helping to improve lawyer efficiency, especially in the litigation arena, with a focus on research and writing tools. Learn the key questions to ask to assess the benefits and risks of using technology.
