Speaking to a large audience is nothing new, but this time, Allegory Founder Alma Asay took her discussion of law and technology across the world.
On October 18, Asay spoke at the International Judicial Symposium in Seoul, South Korea, at the invitation of the Supreme Court of Korea. The topic of the symposium was "The Challenges of and Responses to the Fourth Industrial Revolution: Future of Judiciary."
Using Modern Technology to Tackle the Complexities of High-stakes Litigation
Asay presented on the changing nature of complex dispute litigation, focusing on the growing volume of case-dispositive information to be managed, the globalization of disputes, the increasing importance of connectivity and collaboration among outside counsel, corporate counsel, and co-counsel, the impact of alternative legal services in light of corporate clients' growing demands for "more for less," and the need for standardization and systemization across litigation activities and work product.
"On the four-day trip, I was forced to break from my daily routine and, like the symposium attendees, interact with those outside my professional and geographical bubbles. I was reminded just how refreshing and mind-expanding an experience that can be."
Other distinguished speakers included Fredric Lederer, Professor at William and Mary Law School; Dory Reiling, Amsterdam District Court Judge; Joshua Walker, Founder of Lex Machina; Yeong-ik Lim, Lawyer at Intellicon Law Firm; and Ethan Katsh, Director at the National Center for Technology and Dispute Resolution. Hyung-du Kim, Chief Researcher at the Judicial Policy Research Institute presided over the presentations.
