Technology is transforming virtually every professional function—including the practice of law. Instead of simply automating traditional tasks, advanced technologies will soon allow law firms and in-house counsel to approach legal work in completely new ways.

On the second of our two-part series about technology in the legal space, our guests — Bobbi Basile, Shawnna Hoffman, and Jeff Marple — explore these issues:

  • Return on investment on technology in the legal industry
  • Millennial expectations and technology in law firms
  • How legal education is incorporating technology
  • Technology in the law field in the next 5 years

Bobbi Basile is a Managing Director with HBR Consulting and has nearly 30 years of experience in the law field.

Shawnna Hoffman serves as the IBM Global Co-leader for the Cognitive Legal Practice, as well as a Blockchain Subject Matter Expert and IBM Thought Leader.

Jeff Marple is the Director of Innovation for Corporate Legal at Liberty Mutual Insurance.
