Will Contract Automation Redefine the Traditional Attorney-Client Relationship?
Description

Traditionally, clients rely upon the sound judgment of experienced transactional attorneys to review contracts & advise on related issues, pre-execution, to mitigate one's risk exposure. 

Since much of that exercise centers around common, boilerplate terminology, contract review tools leverage machine learning technology that purports to automate the review of said boilerplate language in lieu of human (attorney) review.  In fact, an entire subcategory of such tools have exploded over the past several years, as has VC interest & backing for the startups operating in this space.  

Freeing up attorneys from boilerplate proofing is never a bad thing, but as machines begin to acquire deep learning capabilities, what does that mean for the future role of the contract attorney?  What tasks will they be left with?

Join us for this provocative session as our expert panelists ponder these questions and more.
