From Deep Blue to LegalMation: how AI is transforming the way litigators work



You know the story: everyone is looking for ways to reduce costs and increase time spent on high value work. As a result, many law firms and corporate legal departments are in search of tools that can move the ball down the field. And some have had success when it comes to transactional work. But did you know that artificial intelligence (AI) can help to achieve those goals in the litigation space?

This session will walk you through how we got from the beginning of AI to where we are today, explore the application of AI in the litigation space and look at where we’re heading in the future. LegalMation’s Tim Fox, chief information officer, and Stephanie Fox, senior director of client experience, will provide you with a solid foundation for understanding how AI fits into the litigation workflow and the ways it can be used to maximise your productivity and gain deep insight into your organisation’s own data.
