Corporate Training Project:Preface Coding X The Law Society of Hong Kong
Case Study: Data Analytics and Python Lunch & Learn Webinar for Legal Professionals
The Law Society of Hong Kong is the professional body of solicitors in Hong Kong vested with statutory powers to regulate the professional conduct of solicitors, trainee solicitors, and foreign lawyers. It establishes and promotes good standards of practice and ensures their compliance by practitioners. The Law Society also offers its views from time to time on legal issues that are of public concern and promotes Hong Kong legal services locally and internationally.
An introductory webinar on Data Science and Python to:
- Provide lawyers with a foundational understanding of Big Data, AI, and Machine Learning through dynamic examples and LegalTech business use-cases.
- Encourage legal professionals to seek data-driven solutions to improve existing workflow through tech implementations and tools.
- Inspire participants to stay abreast of the latest technological development and opportunities in the evolving legal field.
With the majority of the participants being senior executives with no prior technical background, our objective for this Lunch & Learn was to deliver an introductory webinar in an informative and easy-to-understand manner that would help participants understand the implications and opportunities of technology, especially Big Data, Artificial Intelligence and Machine learning, in law.
According to global research and advisory firm Gartner, AI augmentation will provide US$2.9 trillion of business value and 6.2 billion hours of productivity with workers in 2021. By 2023, it is predicted that “lawbots” will handle a quarter of internal legal requests. Without a doubt, AI will bring significant disruption to the legal field and it will transform many traditional modes of legal work. To help our participants stay ahead of the industry curve, our webinar covered topics from A.I. & Machine Learning to Big Data and its application in the legal sector, and even an introduction to the programming language of Python.
To better explain and make relevant these concepts to legal practitioners, we led a live code demonstration of The Case Law Project API project launched by the Harvard Law Library. Through this concrete use case sharing, we showcased how insights can be effectively drawn from a large volume of data to help lawyers identify meaningful trends in legal precedents that could in turn help win cases.
