Skills Learnt

Module 1 - Business skills - Understanding new trends in the legal market  
Christophe Roquilly - Professor - Head of EDHEC Augmented Law Institute.
The legal market, and the legal professions, are today subject to strong tensions that will accelerate the trends observed over the last two/three years.
Legal teams, which have historically developed and built their reputation on their technical expertise (as lawyers), can no longer be satisfied with this. Clients, whether external clients for law firms or internal clients for legal departments, are faced not only with exponential and increasingly complex regulations, but also with a technological, political/geo-political, and competitive environment that is as much a source of opportunity as it is of uncertainty.
The transformation of the legal profession is not only technological, it is also organizational and behavioral. The lawyer, who has historically been built as a "knower" and a "guardian of the temple", must now focus on being a "client centric", team player, perfectly organized to deliver legal operations in order to create value for his/her client or his/her company. Tech is a challenge, but it is not the only one.

The course will also explain how the use of Artificial Intelligence and Machine learning will play an active role in various areas of the legal profession. A report from Deloitte states that 100,000 jobs in the UK legal sector will be automated by 2036. As legal Professionals, how do you embrace AI and future-proof yourselves?

  • How will AI impact your job? Which of your current tasks will be automated? 
  • What strategy will you develop to stay relevant in your profession?
  • How will you compete with “platform lawyers”? (Lawyers who use the digital space to work remotely and market their practice as they desire) In finding talent, increasing productivity and motivating your people? 

Module 2 – The numerical skills: Unleashing the power of data & AI   
Gianclaudio Malgieri - Professor - EDHEC Augmented Law Institute, trusted partner

Special use cases will be : emotion recognition, automated assessment of workers and consumers, biometric categorization, etc.
