Artificial Intelligence in Legal Practice Summit

Published on 20 October 2017

We want to change the conversation about AI in legal practice from scaremongering to opportunity and, we want you to shape it!

We are bringing together lawyers, techies, engineers, designers, academics, legal administrators, legal knowledge management professionals, legal talent management and HR professionals, law firms, legal departments, alternative service providers, business people, start-ups, legalpreneurs, innovators and everyone else we can think of, to share experience, learn, understand, discuss and debate not just what is happening with AI in legal practice but what clients want, what the industry needs, and if it is even possible.

If the future of legal work, the changing legal industry, LegalTech or the augmentation of legal practice and tech interests you, then this summit is where you will get to roll your sleeves up and collaborate in a way that will change your mind and shape the future.

So we can ensure there is a high level of participation, places at the summit are limited. We will be providing more detailed information very soon but, if you want to be sure to secure your place now, please register via the button below.
