Robins Kaplan LLP Trial Advocacy Seminar 2019: Back to Justice


The future is now. Artificial intelligence is all around us, from our homes to our workplaces to our hospitals. Automobiles drive themselves. Wearable devices track our every move and measure our health. Our genetic code can be stored like a criminal record. Today’s technology is a powerful force in the path towards justice, yet our obligation as trial attorneys to cut through complexity and tell our client’s compelling story remains the same. Are you prepared to deploy every tool necessary to advance the rights of your client? After all, with great data comes great responsibility.
