Event Description

This virtual event, co-sponsored with Lando & Anastasi, will explore how innovative companies have found success, particularly over the last year, by creatively implementing the latest technologies, such as Artificial Intelligence. Panelists will examine how traditional work environments in IP law – from in-house to private practice and in academia – have transformed over the past year and what those changes mean for the future of the legal practice. Finally, faculty members and students from Suffolk Law School will detail their efforts to increase access to the courts during the pandemic and how their legal technology innovations will have impact beyond the pandemic.
