Much had been said about how technology and data will revolutionise the practice of law and the delivery of legalservices:

"... technology will significantly reduce the hours required for certain types of legal work... [and] law firms can expect to feel thepressure to operate on a leaner basis and they should start rethinking their traditional billing and coststructures as technology obviates certain forms of legal work..."

"… Technology has already begun to transform our conventional notions of where and how disputes are resolved... Our understanding of who should resolve a dispute is also being transformed by technology…"

but little has been demonstrated of (a) the knowledge that needs to be acquired and (b) the steps that may be taken by practitioners and legal practices in order to incrementally harness (or at least prepare for) the new possibilities brought about by new technologies and advances in data analytics.

Join us at the following series of hands-on programming and data analytics workshops designed specifically to plug the above legal-tech lacuna.

 

The workshops will be conducted by Yong Jie from Lex Quanta.* Yong Jie is a former lawyer and, having spent two years at a law firm, is uniquely placed to not just explain the basic concepts of programming and data analytics, but also show how the underlying concepts may be applied to practice.
