The CALL Continuing Education Committee Presents: Legal Analytics: Beyond the Buzz

What: As discussed by Ed Walters during the November business meeting, analytics tools hold the potential to transform the work of lawyers, similar to the impact of maps on early explorers.  Indeed, for tasks such as devising litigation strategy, managing clients’ expectations, and hiring outside counsel, these new tools help support data-driven decision-making, thereby lessening lawyers’ reliance on hunches and anecdotes.  Moreover, as Ed opined, librarians who are fluent in utilizing these tools stand to increase their importance within their organizations.

Join us for this 1 hour webinar covering what’s on the market today, what’s on the horizon and how to analyze the analytics platforms yourself. The panelists will present a breakdown of what analytics products are currently available and how they differ in functionality and scope. They will also share sample test questions and criteria they use to evaluate the systems on the market today, and share what questions they ask of the vendors as to what’s coming tomorrow.

When: Friday, December 14, at Noon

Where: Via webinar (information on webinar access will be provided prior to the program)
