Everything you always wanted to know about KEI and the software

Time: 15:30 - 17:00  |  Room: JFK 2 Legalsense disrupted the legal software market in the Netherlands in just a few years. We have always been at the forefront of innovation. This year, one of the most important subjects in the Dutch Legal market is the Quality and Innovation program (KEI) of the Dutch courts and how it affects the legal practice. We are offering you a concrete explanation on the upcoming changes and discuss how you can use the different platforms to help you communicating with the courts. KEI The goal of the KEI program is to make litigation more simple and efficient. KEI offers a new online tool for exchanging documents between petitioner, defendant and the court itself. The tool, mijnrechtspraak.nl, will replace the current methods of communication: paper, fax and courier. But is it sufficient? Is mijnrechtspraak.nl the answer to everything? The answer is clearly: NO! The tool has been built by the joined courts to facilitate the judges. While building mijnrechtspraak.nl the interests and requirements of lawyers were initially not taken into account. In this seminar technical, functional and juridical issues will be outlined by Robert Stallmann. Since 2002 Robert is consulting law firms on their ‘roladministratie’ and he is the owner of the only professional software tool for ‘roladministratie’ in the market, Ceres. Who should know all about mijnrechtspraak.nl All litigation professionals working in Dutch law firms that want to be prepared for the upcoming major change in Dutch litigation. This change is bigger than the defeasance of the attorney in 2008. Due to the subject matter being relevant to the Dutch legal market, this seminar will be held in the Dutch language.

What is Artificial Intelligence & how can it benefit law firms?

Time: 13:30 - 15:00  |  Room: JFK 5 The only thing to fear is doing nothing With the amount of data held in the enterprise growing exponentially, the challenge of finding, reading and understanding relevant information is growing proportionally. RAVN’s Artificial Intelligence (AI) technology, RAVN Applied Cognitive Engine (ACE) mirrors human expertise by understanding unstructured data to automate the process of extracting and distilling key information from within the documents. How can this technology benefit the Law firm? We want to demystify the concept of Artificial Intelligence and its usage in the corporate world. There has been a lot of hype around AI and we want to explore the real practical applications and how it could open up new possibilities. Whilst AI technology can be focused inwardly at the law firm, several opportunities arise to open up new business services. Increase efficiency & competitive advantage: This technology can fast-track the review process and automate information extraction. It can even produce contract summaries of key provisions in an easy-to-review format resulting in faster turn-around for the client, freeing up capacity for fee-earners and critically, enabling firms to improve their margins.
