About the Symposium
Advances in digitization and machine learning have transformed legal analytics, easing the extraction and interpretation of large legal datasets. Additionally, legaltech upstarts are chipping away at the dominance of traditional legal research providers. More so than in decades, users have their pick of research tools and platforms. This Symposium brings together scholars and practitioners in digital humanities, computational legal analysis, computer science, legaltech and other areas to discuss the trajectory of legal analytics.
The keynote presentation will feature speaker James Grimmelmann, the Tessler Family Professor of Digital and Information Law at Cornell Law School, in conversation with Sarah Lawsky, professor and associate dean of academic programs at Northwestern University Pritzker School of Law.
Panel topics include "Big Data Corporate Research," "Modeling Legal Reasoning" and "Developments in LegalTech." You can view a full list of speakers on the registration page.
