An all-new, easy-to-digest seminar to help you understand the technology (and how to leverage it) that’s literally transforming the practice of law.

  • Not sure what a blockchain is, but you’re seeing/hearing it more and more in legal discussions?
  • Confused about what exactly AI (Artificial Intelligence) is really doing in the legal sector?
  • Unsure how you will ever be able to use these things, or even where to start?

As a rapidly increasing number of New Jersey businesses have started using artificial intelligence and blockchain technology in their daily operations, corporate counsel and other legal partners are not only responsible for understanding the legal implications, but are also uniquely positioned to effectively leverage cognitive technologies as tools to manage business and legal transactions.

Attendees will gain clarity into – and a working knowledge of – the most prevalent of these new technologies, including artificial intelligence, blockchain and Cryptocurrency, so that you understand how they work and what the risks are. You’ll also gain an understanding of how these different technologies are used and why corporate counsel is employing them more and more to help safeguard their businesses. Then, the program will uncover some of the myths of using cognitive technology, all while providing some practical considerations to manage risks associated with this burgeoning area of technology.

Gain a solid working knowledge of the most important new technology impacting the legal sector, as well as both the risks and benefits associated with it, including:

  • An easy-to-follow review of what artificial intelligence and blockchain are in New Jersey’s legal and corporate sectors.
  • The most common use cases for artificial intelligence and blockchain in law firms and New Jersey businesses.
  • Who’s using Cryptocurrency, what it means, and why they’re using it.
  • How some organizations are using AI to automate tasks like contract review and handwriting/facial recognition.
