Akerman is a sponsor of the 2017 ACC Annual Meeting. During the conference, Martin Tully, Data Law Practice Group Co-Chair, will speak on the panel, "Rise of the Machines: Can Compliance and Litigation Keep Up?" This session will address the following questions: Will it eventually be considered negligent not to use AI to identify and monitor compliance risks? What are the possibilities for AI in litigation, beyond utilization in e-discovery? In the future, will AI be used in conjunction with brief writing, pleadings preparation, jury selection, and prediction of jury verdicts? Panelists will share their experiences and recommendations regarding the value, risks, and pitfalls of including AI in your compliance programs and in litigation.
Additionally, Kathi Giddings, Litigation Practice Group Deputy Chair, will speak on the panel, "Ethics of In-house Pro Bono," which will provide an overview of the ethical issues in-house attorneys face when representing clients in pro bono matters in the U.S. and globally, as well as address practical issues related to in-house pro bono.
