Here is a description of the conference, from the event’s Website:
[…] The conference will bring together leading thinkers, entrepreneurs, investors and technologists that are experimenting and actively working to re-architect the future of the law.
The conference will address a variety of topics including technology’s impact on legal data ecosystems, maintaining the health of virtual legal marketplaces, and emerging legal technologies within the realm of public interest law. The aim is to engage with the deeper issues presented by these technologies and project their long-term impact on the law as they become more widely adopted. We also hope that the day will be an opportunity for the legal tech community to come together to share their experiences, collaborate on projects, and plan for the future.
Here are the topics of the conference panels:
- Forging an Open Legal Document Ecosystem
- Managing Legal Marketplaces
- Rebuilding Legal Education
- Legal Technology in the Public Interest
- Legal Ethics in the Age of Machines
Among the keynote addresses was one by Professor Dr. Michael Genesereth: The Cop in the Backseat – Embedding Law in Everyday Life.
