The growing trend of technology and the recent developments in the field of Artificial Intelligence (AI) has to lead to apprehensions in the mind of some people who have been compelled to think- will lawyering and advocacy come to an end?
This fear was triggered when Richard Susskind, in his book titled 'The End of Lawyers?' provides a sweeping assessment of today’s legal services landscape and describes the architecture of the systems that will replace it. He mentions the potential use of technology which might prove efficient in replacing the roles and tasks of lawyers if put into the picture.
He also gives examples to prove his hypothesis. Besides, the growing interest in applying AI to the law is slowly transforming the profession and seems to be replacing the role of paralegals, legal researchers, and litigators.
Keeping this in mind, we have brought an International Webinar on AI, Law, and Evolution of Legal Engineering for you. Get ready to meet the elites of AI and law, learn about developments in AI and law, and the evolution of new fields like legal engineering, legal data scientist, and legal technologist.
Mark your calendars for 14th June 2020 to attend our International webinar where speakers from Norway, Serbia, Germany, United Kingdom, and India would be speaking on the recent developments and advancements in the field of AI in law and LegalTech.
