About this Event

The event takes place on Thursday, October 3 from 3-8:30 p.m. in the Laurence E. Hirsch ’71 Classroom (Room 101) at the Villanova University Charles Widger School of Law.

The program is approved for 3 substantive CLE credits.

Description

Artificial intelligence and machine learning are transforming the way all industries behave. Although law has been perhaps slower to adapt, these new technologies have become powerful disruptors in the legal profession that is traditionally labor-intensive. Lawyers can no longer effectively represent their clients by simply wading into data without the benefits AI and machine learning provide in areas ranging from data search and retrieval to legal reasoning to outcome prediction.

The John F. Scarpa Center for Law and Entrepreneurship in partnership with the Villanova School of Business, Center for Business Analytics presents “Disruption of Legal Services through Artificial Intelligence and Automation”. Arup Das will present an interactive course introducing these technologies and describing:

(1) how artificial intelligence and data science are already transforming the practice of law, from mergers and acquisitions to eDiscovery to commercial contracts to criminal law;

(2) how analytics and technology services are forcing law firms to reevaluate their use of data and technology to differentiate themselves in an increasingly commoditized market for legal services; and

(3) practical considerations in collecting, storing, and leveraging data in the legal industry, with examples from criminal justice to commercial real estate.

Prior to Mr. Das' presentation, there will be an Introduction to Business Analytics, taught by Villanova School of Business faculty member, Dr Stephen Mahar, Professor, Management & Operations and Faculty Director, Master of Science in Analytics Program.

No prior knowledge of analytics, AI/Machine Learning is required.

The lecture will be followed by a panel of senior leaders at Philadelphia area law firms discussing the impact of AI and machine learning on their practices, including:
