Diving Deeper into Legal Research Potential: Advanced Online Legal Research Concepts
Wednesday, July 24, noon-1:00 p.m.
Location: Live webinar - Register for Diving Deeper into Legal Research Potential: Advanced Online Legal Research Concepts

American business man and former CEO of Microsoft Steve Ballmer once stated, “The number one benefit of information technology is that it empowers people to do what they want to do. It lets people be creative. It lets people be productive. It lets people learn things they didn't think they could learn before, and so in a sense it is all about potential.” The goal of this course today is to harnessing the potential as attorneys to learn things about online legal research you didn’t think you could learn before. This course is going to be a deeper dive into online legal research. According to the model rules of professional conduct, attorneys need to maintain competency, and a component of maintaining competency is to keep abreast of the benefits and risks of relevant technology. By the end of this course you all will be made aware of advanced online legal research methods to harness your potential as a researcher and to maintain a standard of competency in the legal profession.

In this session, attendees will learn about navigating the competitive advances of responsible AI in their business strategy, eliminating bias, and what solution providers are doing to create inclusive, responsible technologies. Presenters will also examine recent legislation and regulatory responses relevant to AI and what is on the horizon for the coming years.
