Maybe There’s an App for That: New Legal Technologies, Access to Justice, and the Changing Practice of Law

                        

The panelists and moderator for the 2019 CLE "Maybe There’s an App for That: New Legal Technologies, Access to Justice, and the Changing Practice of Law" along with ABF Executive Director Ajay K. Mehrotra. From Left to Right: Elizabeth Stong, Rebecca Sandefur, Daniel Rodriguez, Katherine Alteneder, Ajay K. Mehrotra, Barbara Buckley, and Georges Clement.

Digital technologies develop at a rapid pace, automating activities that once required intense human involvement. New tools automate aspects of legal practice and legal services delivery, as well. Panelists at this year's CLE described contemporary developments and explored their implications for how law is practiced, for legal empowerment of non-lawyers, and for the definition of the practice of law itself.

This program was sponsored by the ABA Center for Innovation, ABA Criminal Justice Section, ABA Division for Legal Services, ABA Government & Public Sector Lawyers Division, ABA Section of Civil Rights & Social Justice, ABA Section of Science & Technology Law, and ABA Young Lawyers Division.
