Artificial Intelligence, Technology and the Future of Law
Saturday, March 25, 2017
Legal scholars, lawyers, and technologists alike have begun to forecast fundamental changes to law and the legal profession, arising from the use of new and emerging technologies, and the inexorable pressure to economize on legal costs. This conference seeks to explore some of the assertions and predictions in this growing body of literature, whether of dire consequences for the legal profession, or of hopeful new paths to equality and access. It will focus on four key questions that capture the broad and far-ranging impact that technology may have on the study and practice of law: How Will Artificial Intelligence Alter the Practice of Law? Will Technology Democratize Access to Legal Services? How Will Technology Change Legal Education? Will Technology Challenge the Conceptual Foundation of the Law?
Our keynote speaker will be Professor Dana Remus, UNC School of Law. Panelists will include Prof. Frank Pasquale, University of Maryland School of Law, Prof. Mireille Hildebrandt, Vrije Universiteit Brussel, and Prof. Daniel Rodriguez, Dean, Northwestern Pritzker School of Law.
Generously supported by the University of Toronto Law Journal and the Social Sciences and Humanities Research Council of Canada.
