Across the legal industry, hype around technology such as artificial intelligence, robotics, data analytics, and other techniques has reached a fever pitch. Yet, adoption of advanced technology by both in-house law departments and law firms remains slow. 

This presentation will discuss some of the real-world, current use cases for advanced technology in legal operations as well as addressing some of the barriers to adoption and leadership techniques to overcome those barriers. This discussion will dispel myths and bring clarity for those in legal departments by: 

  1. Unpacking the conceptual underpinnings of new technologies and financial data analytics
  2. Identifying ways to drive key technology strategies and deliver results
  3. Sharing real-world use cases including process automation through RPA, cognitive computing applications, and advanced application of contract management
