SHORT COURSE

Artificial Intelligence in Law

In this world of digital disruption, join us to explore the uses of artificial intelligence (AI) in the law, particularly for disputes, litigation, and investigations. From the perspective of a judge, a legal technologist and a mathematician, you will learn when and how to apply AI techniques, including analytics, predictive coding and technology assisted review (TAR) to control costs.

About this course

Document review is typically the most expensive component of any dispute or investigation, primarily due to the volume of documents in this world of big data. Utilising a leading eDiscovery technology platform, Nuix Discover, you will spend part of this course in a virtual hands-on lab, learning how analytics and predictive coding can be applied to reduce the number of documents for review, allowing relevant evidence and valuable facts to be found more quickly.

Nine CPD units (one unit per hour)

Course structure

This course consists of four webinars over consecutive days led by a number of expert facilitators.

Topics covered include:

1.  What a judge considers when parties utilise TAR in the discovery process, including:

  • The judicial approach to using TAR & analytics
  • Parties’ discovery obligations
  • How a joint or unilateral approach works, and
  • How the use of TAR should be verified.

2.  What early case assessment strategies can be used when applying analytics and TAR for discovery or investigations (based on first-hand experience).

3.  How TAR actually works - explained by a mathematician, in terms a lawyer can understand.

4.  Which skills are necessary and how a multidisciplinary approach will achieve best practice outcomes. Learn why collaboration between lawyers and technologists is critical.

5.  Financial considerations when deciding how and what technologies and services to use.

During the final webinar (held in a virtual, hands-on lab), you will see how predictive coding actually works and how analytics can assist in early case assessment.
