Is My Bot Biased: The Effect of Technology on Access to Justice and Bias in the Legal Profession

  • Minnesota Judicial Center (map)

Description: Technology continues to impact the delivery and availability of legal services, both in how lawyers practice law and how the public consumes legal services. The legal profession has long faced issues with equal access to justice and the uniform administration of justice. Evolving technology offers the possibility of a level playing field and the democratization of the law, but it could also perpetuate or exacerbate existing biases and prejudices in the justice system. In this session we will explore how evolving technology may eliminate or reduce bias or prejudice in the legal profession, in the practice of law, and in the administration of justice. But where these technologies fall short in the elimination of bias in the legal profession, we will discuss what lawyers and others in the legal industry can do to avoid perpetuating existing biases in the deliverability and accessibility of legal services. 

CLE Credits: One standard credit will be applied for.
