An Introduction on Artificial Intelligence - Evaluating & Guiding AI outputs and results

  1. How can we ensure that ("the how") legal perspective is taken into consideration? Parallelism with the proverb "Beware of what you wish for"
  2. How do we feed AI? With Big Data and analytics. The data that an AI receives somehow determines their way of processing.
  3. Should regulation include mandatory content for AI? Should AI be allowed to take relevant decisions, or should they present options? AI can go beyond: analyzing and changing the outcome of an accident in a millisecond.

Federico will also discuss AI Practical applications, general and specific for legal industry (jurisprudence seeking, data analytics, due diligence procedures, etc.) and will talk about AI and Labor Market.

Acquisition Integration & Operational Frameworks

The presentation will provide insights into designing and implementing operational frameworks that optimise case progression, client service and team engagement in 2 practice areas.

This presentation will showcase the principles applicable to designing for any practice area or operational requirement more generally. We will look at the relationships and inter-dependencies between work complexity, skills analysis, resource & reward management and the technology platform. Finally we will look at a high-level case study on acquisition integration in the context of a pre-existing operational framework and the benefits that accrue from bolt-on acquisitions integrated onto an effective operational framework.

Trouble Shooter in the Ivory Tower? Or The Future Profile of the Legal Function?

  1. What are the factors that define the legal function in the years to come?
  2. Will the legal function be less counseling and more managerial?
  3. Will we move on from solving legal issues to modeling business and actively managing risks?

And if so, can the function maintain a quality as gate keeper for governance risks while taking an active role in the middle of the playing field?

Business models in the digital era are likely to comprise multiple legal aspects that need to be anticipated, embedded and managed. Digitalization is changing industries and business models as well as the workplace of the traditional lawyer.

What will these forces do to our function and how will we manage to further develop it as a function that serves its clients best while maintaining a home for the professionals we need to cope with our tasks.

Group 2 - Group Discussion Modern Slavery and Business & Human Rights: A Fast-Changing Landscape

In recent years there have been significant developments in international legislation and frameworks dealing with modern slavery and forced labour, and it appears that more laws are on the way. What does this trend mean for businesses and how they think about compliance and risk? And should they be focusing solely on modern slavery or are there other issues that should be in scope?

This session will provide a brief overview of the legislative landscape and how it continues to change. It will also highlight some of the ways in which BBC Studios has been responding to these new laws and frameworks.

The Future of Risk Management

It is widely recognised today that Risk Management is both an increasingly important topic and, particularly in the case of Operational Risk, an increasingly complex one. As Risk Professionals, it is therefore incumbent upon us to design and deliver models and frameworks that can manage this complexity but also unravel it for the benefit of the users and senior executives who rely upon it.

In this session, Ayesha will explore current thinking on the topic and identify those elements that will prove fundamental to delivering on this monumental task.

Winedown Workshop - Workshop 5 Risk & Inclusivity
