We will begin at 5:30 with networking and kick off the program at 6:00 p.m. Our list of speakers includes:
• Professor Jerry Goldman (https://www.kentlaw.iit.edu/faculty/full-time-faculty/jerry-goldman), Research Professor of Law and Director of the Oyez Project, Chicago-Kent College of Law -- The Oyez Project has matched Supreme Court oral argument transcripts with audio through machine processing.
• Brian C. Pike (http://briancpike.com/about/), Michigan State University College of Law, Student -- Design Thinking for Service Industries: How lean methods perfectly fit in deconstructing and measuring what lawyers "do."
• John Mayer (http://www.linkedin.com/pub/john-mayer/0/587/936/en), Executive Director at Center for Computer-Assisted Legal Instruction -- Failed Technology Projects -- "Success has many parents, failure is an orphan. No one talks about failure--it's embarrassing, but there are so many more lessons to be learned than from only hearing about new and shiny projects (which I can talk about too). I am going to talk about failed technology projects I have been involved in and ruminate a little bit on why they failed. I will try to extract the lessons learned (if any) and do this all in 10 minutes. Confessions from the audience will be solicited."
• Professor Lori Andrews (https://www.kentlaw.iit.edu/faculty/full-time-faculty/lori-b-andrews), Chicago-Kent College of Law -- Digital Peepholes -- Along with recent Chicago-Kent grad Dan Massoglia (https://www.linkedin.com/in/dmassoglia) and legal fellow Michael Holloway, Lori co-authored a policy paper, Digital Peepholes, about the law surrounding the remote activation of webcams by governments, companies, and hackers to spy on people without their knowledge or consent. (Available at www.ckprivacy.org (http://www.ckprivacy.org/).) In the report, they advocate against law enforcement being able to remotely access people’s webcams, encourage prosecutors to use existing laws to prosecute hackers who activate webcams, and also provide suggestions for new laws. Dan Massoglia has an Atlantic piece (http://www.theatlantic.com/technology/archive/2014/12/the-webcam-hacking-epidemic/383998/) based on the report.
• Hanna Kaufman (http://www.linkedin.com/in/hannalynnekaufman/en), Chicago Kent College of Law, Student -- A2J in Action: A Case Study from California -- Hanna will draw on her experiences creating an A2J Guided Interview for the state of California to explore how law students can play a critical role in expanding access to justice while developing the types of skills today's lawyers--in all sectors--need.
• Kingsley Martin (http://www.linkedin.com/in/kingsleymartin), KMStandards, President & CEO -- Resolve--Automated Contract Review -- A discussion on contract analysis, contract quantification, and emerging technology designed to review one or many contracts, together its impact on the business and practice of law.
