The legal professions are traditionally risk averse and hesitant about change for good reason—consideration and prudence are the hallmarks of jurisprudence that will last. But what happens when this traditional approach meets the promise and disruption of advancing technologies and new ways of thinking? Special Lectures returns to delve into the many answers to that question. This year, join your fellow practitioners, tech experts, professors, and judges for an enlightening, provocative discussion on how artificial intelligence, innovative technologies, and new measures of social and individual behaviour are changing (or have the potential to change) the delivery of legal services. The legal profession of the future is nearer than you think, and in many cases, it’s already here. Find out what this means for you and your practice.
