Program – 8:30 A.M. – 10:00 A.M.
Changes in legal technologies, along with pressures from clients, employees and regulatory systems, are forcing firms to rethink how they deliver legal services. Our Four-Member Panel will discuss the following technology trends that are driving change and reshaping our industry:
- Artificial Intelligence (AI) and Machine Learning (ML) – What is AI and what is ML? Kevin Miller, CEO of LegalSifter, a Strip-District-based artificial intelligence startup company, will discuss why AI and ML are not about making lawyers obsolete but rather transforming how they work.
- Data Privacy & Changing Regulations – Today’s technology landscape has a series of rapidly changing security threats and also rapidly changing privacy regulations. Bruce Chiu, Attorney & Co-Chair of the Data Security, Privacy & Information Law Group of Cohen & Grigsby, will discuss what you need to know about these threats, the changing regulatory environment and how to keep abreast of it all.
- Outsourcing – Does It Make Sense For You? – What should you outsource and what should you keep in house? Keith Cameron, Consultant and former Firm Administrator at Houston Harbaugh, will address factors to consider in deciding whether to outsource your firm’s IT functions, what you should look for in a provider and what kinds of agreements you need to have in place.
- Virtual Law Firms – A virtual law firm is a legal practice that does not have a bricks-and-mortar office. Kevin Sullivan, Director of Technology at Cohen & Grigsby, will discuss how virtual law firms are delivering legal services to clients through technology and cloud computing, why this type of practice is spreading globally and why it is finding favor with some attorneys and clients.
