Legal analytics and AI are becoming mainstream. Academics and practitioners are adopting the technology and applying it in real world situations to solve legal questions. The shift from hype to application has brought to light the challenges legal technology still has to overcome, and questions about how best to move forward. The 2019 Georgia State University Law Review Symposium will highlight the outcomes and lessons learned from initiatives already underway and facilitate a discussion about what to expect as legal AI, predictive analytics professionals, and GSU’s Legal Analytics Lab and faculty push these innovations forward.

Our goal is to bring together the legal and legal tech communities to discuss the state of legal artificial intelligence and predictive analytics in 2019, forthcoming technological advances, related ethical issues, and ultimately, illuminate the future in this field.

Through this symposium, Georgia State University Law Review hopes to foster meaningful debate on these important topics and inspire collaboration that improves the outcomes and expectations for legal tech.

Join GSU Law Review from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. Friday, April 5, 2019 for the symposium featuring scholars, national experts, practicing attorneys and thought leaders for a discussion about the future of the legal profession.
