Litigation, LegalTech, prosecution, and enforcement are all bound to be changed by the digital transformation of legal services especially AI. Law firms can benefit from LegalTech services but also have to answer new digitization-related questions which are partly difficult to answer (e.g. autonomous driving, blockchain). Entrepreneurs see countless opportunities. This meetup discusses the future of legal services. Can our legal problems be addressed by innovative startups? How does the job of lawyers, prosecutors, and litigators change due to new digital tools such as Artificial Intelligence? What type of claims will be digitalized next?
Join the this Disrupt meetup of the digital law and LegalTech community in Düsseldorf. It aims at bringing together blockchain enthusiastic enterprises and individuals that want to get to know the technology, as well as understand how it can be used and applied.
