Envisioning the AI-Enabled Legal Team of the Future

Here’s the abstract for Robert Blacksberg’s Envisioning the AI-Enabled Legal Team of the Future, 2018 ctrl ALT del conference:

Artificial intelligence (AI) can be found again in the front row of technology investment and development. Perhaps better standing for “augmented intelligence,” AI tools that employ machine learning, natural language processing and expert systems, among others, with the power to handle big data, are earning a place at the legal team’s table.

Now we must bring to the table the people with the necessary skills and understanding to incorporate AI in legal practice.They need to participate in the organization and delivery of legal services from the beginning of engagements and become active members of project teams. There emerged from the ALT conference a vision of a less hierarchical team, with a broader set of skills and a greater degree of client involvement than the traditional phalanx of rainmaker partner, engagement partner, associate and support staff.
