Supercharging Patent Lawyers With AI (via IEEE Spectrum)

In my recent article, Quantitative Legal Prediction – or – How I Learned to Stop Worrying and Start Preparing for the Data Driven Future of the Legal Services Industry 62 Emory Law Journal 909 (2013), I discuss how companies like Lex Machina are creating a more efficient and data driven legal industry.  Next semester at MSU Law, Michael Bommarito and I will co-teach a course called “Legal Analytics.”  This is a follow on the introductory course that I teach called “Quantitative Methods for Lawyers.”  In Legal Analytics, students will be exposed to cutting edge predictive analytics approaches such as machine learning, natural language processing, network science, etc.  Students will apply their skills on real datasets that are available from published papers or from some our industry partners.  Thus, the course will mix theory with practical applications useful for the practice of law as we move forward into the 21st Century.
