Step into the future of law and AI, where meaningful insights and practical knowledge await. In a world inundated with buzzwords and surface-skimming opinions, our event stands apart, offering a day of real learning and training.

Delve beyond the surface to gain valuable takeaways that will shape your practice and empower you to meet the evolving needs of your clients.

Our speakers, true experts and practitioners, are at the forefront of AI and law, bringing with them a wealth of experience, skill, and commercial know-how. Join us for this must-attend event that will arm you with the tools to navigate the trends and challenges of AI on the horizon.


Session 1: Deploying AI – navigating the legal and regulatory landscape
In this session, we will examine recent AI legal updates, hear from experts on AI regulation, and take a world tour of recent AI litigation. We will also take a deeper dive into the thorny issue of AI liability.

Session 2: AI deployment in a business context
AI deployment in a business context the significant benefits that AI can drive including cost savings, cost avoidance and revenue growth are well documented. Yet, industry intelligence is that only 11 – 20% percent or so of AI Use cases typically make it into production. A key question for most businesses is why that is and this session will be a senior level panel discussion including Lord Clement-Jones CBE and Angela Luget (Partner, McKinsey) covering the core reasons and ways to address those so as to tap into the benefits of AI and scale deployment effectively.

Session 3: AI Mock Adjudication:
Experience a live mock adjudication of an AI dispute, with IT expert, Dr Gillian Hunt, sitting as the adjudicator, with counsel including Matthew Lavy KC (opponent TBC), making submissions.

At the end of this session, we are excited to launch the new SCL Mediation Scheme.
