AI, Ethics, and The Law of Robot Lawyers

Futurists are fond of predicting the future of robot lawyers. But how much of AI for law is hype and how much will we actually see in real-world practice? Fastcase CEO Ed Walters, who teaches The Law of Robots at Georgetown Law, will separate hype from reality for practice today and examine ethical and practical implications of artificial intelligence on the legal industry.

This CLE is approved for credit through December 20, 2019.
