What is computational law? How should the legal industry approach it? And how can you make sure you know enough about it to thrive in the future legal industry?
We have previously discussed if lawyers should learn how to code? The discussion is never-ending, and we are going to take it up again when we dig deeper into the world of computational law.
We will move towards a definition of computational law and find out exactly how much legal reasoning can be automated and managed by machines. Then we try to find out how lawyers should approach it: To what degree is it relevant for the legal industry to know about computational law? And what can lawyers do to learn more about it? The journey starts here.
To answer all those questions, we have invited two members om the new MIT Computational Law Report. One is Daniel “Dazza” Greenwood who is a researcher at MIT Media Lab, a lecturer on computational law and legal engineering at MIT Connection Science in the MIT School of Engineering, and Executive Director of Law.MIT.edu, the publisher of MIT Computational Law Report. Dazza consults through CIVICS.com to fortune 50 companies, has frequently testified to Congress and state legislatures on law and technology, and is a winner of the FastCase 50 Award for being a "pioneer" of computational law and "ahead of the curve, seeing and reacting to trends years before they impact the legal market." The other is Bryan Wilson who is a Fellow at MIT Connection Science and the Editor in Chief of the MIT Computational Law Report. Legaltech News listed him as 1 of the 18 Millennials Changing the Face of Legal Tech for work he completed as a fellow with the inaugural class of fellows with ABA Center for Innovation.
These people are global experts on the field of computational law so if there is one chance to know more about computational law, this is it. You will get a fundamental introduction and a chance to ask them the questions who want. The event is, as always, for free.
