The Modern Legal Department:
Optimizing Processes with Contract Automation & Intelligence

Wednesday, September 22, 2021 | 4:00 – 5:00pm ET

Join this roundtable to learn how many of the legal processes that dominate in-house counsel’s time can be accelerated and improved by pairing attorneys with artificial intelligence – a model called human-in-the-loop technology. While use cases of automation and AI will continue to grow, there is no doubt that nuanced critical thinking will always be needed to construct, negotiate, and satisfy complex commercial contracts.

During the discussion, Luke Ruse, General Counsel at InCloudCounsel, will walk through the complexities and ever-growing challenges facing in-house legal departments and the ways in which a human-in-the-loop strategy can streamline routine and repetitive tasks. In doing so, departments can also free up time to focus on high-value projects, ultimately driving better outcomes for their organizations.

This session is all about accelerating the practice of law with advances in legal technology by:

  • Recognizing the need for enhanced standardization
  • Aligning around organizational shifts
  • Identifying data gaps
  • Championing change
  • Implementing and adapting a technology-driven approach that works
