Demystifying artificial intelligence: What lawyers really need to know about technology

Start Date
University of Queensland

Hub Director Lyria Bennett Moses to present at the The Technology and the Future of the Legal Profession Lecture Series

The automation of various aspects of legal services delivery, from discovery and due diligence to predictive analytics, have raised questions for university and continuing legal education. Should lawyers learn how to code? Will law firms and courts continue to be staffed primarily by humans? The answer to these questions lies in familiarity with the systems and technologies that lie behind the notion of “artificial intelligence”. To work effectively alongside technology, lawyers will need to understand it, not by learning to code, but by grasping the underlying logics.
