Technology and the Provision of Legal Services to the Poor and Middle Class in the USA and Beyond
America is on the forefront of the digital revolution in law, from online legal services, to electronic discovery tools, and the eventual use of so called "AI" in law. This panel will overview the current state of the technology, argue its pros and cons, and discuss how it might or might not help address America’s longstanding "Access to Justice" crisis. It will also cover the progress in the EU and elsewhere.
