MP, Lord Chancellor and Secretary of State for Justice, the Rt Hon David Gauke, and President of The Law Society and Chair, Technology and the Law Commission, Christina Blacklaws, will open the Artificial Intelligence in Legal Services Summit, which is being held under a partnership between City & Financial Global and the Law Society of England and Wales, in Central London on the 4th June 2019.
This high-profile summit will be the official launch of the final report from the Technology and Law Commission’s investigation into the use of AI in the justice system, a collaborative programme which has drawn together insights from industry, academia, political science, civil society, law enforcement and regulators.
The conference will also examine in depth the wider impact of AI on the UK legal sector, including future skill requirements, how legal services will be delivered in the future, the implications for the current business models of legal practitioners and how AI may change the relationship between the providers of legal services and their clients as society adjusts to an AI-enabled world.
