Are you a solicitor, barrister, general counsel or otherwise involved within tech in the legal sector?

Then we have three questions for you:

Do you think AI (Artificial Intelligence).Machine Learning (ML) and automation of more and more white collar work could impact your work?

Are you up to speed with just what blockchain is – and what it might mean for contracts?

Do you feel confident that your firm is on the right track when it comes to planning to exploit and understand these drivers of change?

Then we think we have some answers for you and also an opportunity to win a free package worth £395 + VAT.

They’ll be coming in the shape of a new conference, THINK AI For Legal 2018, which will offer legal practitioners visibility into the current state of play with these key technologies and how they could affect their profession.

Taking place on Thursday, May 3 2018 at One Moorgate Place, London, the one-day event will outline what providers of legal services and general counsel need to know now about the specifics of AI, ML and blockchain’s impact.

Confirmed speakers include the Vice President of the Law Society, Christina Blacklaws and Bird & Bird Partner Roger Bickerstaff (go here for the full speaker list).

Well-known UK legal sector figure Michael Cross, News Editor of the Law Society Gazette will act as our chair on the day.  Cross has been reporting on AI and technology worldwide since the 1980s, for publications including The Independent and New Scientist, and has also spent the past decade specialised in covering transformation in the UK legal sector.

“The legal profession is on the tipping point of a revolution,” warns Cross.

“For decades, lawyers have famously eschewed information technology – but this is now changing, as clients and the courts system alike demand digital approaches to legal work.

“This conference is one of the first in the UK to explore the possibilities across different sectors of law, from both the provider and the client’s perspective, of the entry of AI and blockchain into the picture.

“It will not come up with all the answers – but will generate the questions that everyone who works in or buys legal services needs to be asking.”

“We have created Think AI For Legal in response to a clear need for the British legal sector to get the chance of quality information and guidance around what practitioners tell us they see as a potential earthquake, changing everything they do,” added the Managing Director of Think Digital Partners, Lucy Brown.

As with all Think events, the emphasis will be on practical information and knowledge acquisition for delegates.
