Legal tech on trial
Friday 17 June (1115 - 1215)
As legal technology continues to advance and evolve, trials and depositions bear little resemblance to the paper-centric proceedings they used to be in decades past. The days when litigation meant being buried in boxes and boxes of documents and exhibits are long gone. From virtual proceedings and paperless depositions to real-time technologies and mobile capabilities, technology has become an integral part of practicing law today. In different countries, there are court disputes aiming at preventing contract platforms from offering their services to clients without lawyers directly involved. What have we learnt so far and what are the legal challenges ahead concerning the use of ‘legal tech’? The panellists, from different backgrounds and perspective, will discuss these and other issues affecting the legal profession and its foreseeable future.
