Cornell Law School Alumni Reception in Boston

Thursday, May 9, 2019
Boston, MA
Alumni Affairs

You are cordially invited to the Cornell Law School Boston Alumni Reception
“AI, Legal Education, and the Law”

Presented by: Matthew D'Amore, BS '91, Associate Dean, Cornell Tech and Professor of the Practice, Cornell Tech, Cornell Law School
Advances in legal technology are making waves through the legal industry. Just as Lexis and Westlaw transformed legal research (and law firm libraries) over the past 20 years, artificial intelligence tools threaten to disrupt virtually every other area of the business and practice of law. These transformations have been suggested many times over; are they finally here? If so, how do we help prepare law students to practice in a radically changing market? No law school has the answer, in part because the disruption is still taking shape. Professor D’Amore will review some of the proposed approaches, discuss how law schools (and Cornell) are adapting, and, hopefully, get the benefit of your insights and views based on your practice.
Professor D'Amore will also give a brief update on the Cornell Tech Campus.
