Automation of the legal profession is already happening around contract management, document review and legal research. More widely in the future, artificial intelligence is either going to redefine the working processes of law firms, or fizzle out as a flash-in-the-pan technology.

How many lawyers are going to be replaced by "bots" in the next five years? Which areas of legal practice will artificial intelligence hit hardest?

Rise of the Robots: Artificial Intelligence and the Future of the Law, a panel discussion hosted by The Brief Premium, will analyse pivotal issues around the future use of AI and how it will change legal practice. 

Join us to hear the views and insight of leading experts, featuring the panellists:

  • Lord Clement-Jones, chairman of the All Party Parliamentary Group on AI
  • Emily Foges, CEO, Luminance
  • Richard Tromans, editor, Artificial Lawyer
  • Peter Wallqvist, VP, iManage, and former CEO, RAVN Systems
  • Isabel Parker, global head of legal services innovation, Freshfields Bruckhaus Deringer LLP

Also at the event, we will launch our special report, AI and the Future of Law, which is based on a survey of Britain's 100 biggest law firms. This level of research into law firms' use of AI has never been done before, and we expect to uncover important trends and other insights. Representatives from the top 100 law firms participating in the survey and leading corporations will join us. We look forward to seeing you in September.
