The overlapping technologies of big data, legal informatics, predictive analytics, algorithms and artificial intelligence are rapidly transforming the practice, management and study of legal services, launching the field of “legal analytics.” The Center for Law, Science & Innovation (LSI) at ASU’s Sandra Day O’Connor College of Law has long been at the forefront of e-discovery and digital evidence, hosting the Annual ASU-Arkfeld eDiscovery and Digital Evidence Conference every March since 2012. In 2016, we launched an expanded ASU-Arkfeld Program on eDiscovery, Digital Evidence & Legal Analytics that includes additional research, workshops, partnerships, and collaborative projects on legal analytics issues.
The expanded program launched with a kick-off workshop on legal analytics and big data in December, 2016, and this workshop is now another annual fixture of the program, with the third workshop scheduled for Fall 2018. The full-day workshops involve approximately 30 invited experts from law firms, legal analytics vendors and consultants, and academia. The goal is to help to better define, characterize, and project the future of the field of legal analytics, and to identify priority areas for future research projects, partnerships and collaborations. The workshop will include a small number of speaker presentations, with the rest of the day being dedicated to off-the-record discussion between our expert participants.
We are always looking for program partners, expert contributors, and ways to grow. If you are interested in more information about the Legal Analytics & Big Data workshop, or in opportunities to participate in the ASU-Arkfeld programs, please contact LSI Director Lauren Burkhart at Lauren.Burkhart@asu.edu.
