Lex Machina hosted a webcast on The Responsible Use of Legal Analytics on March 25, 2021. The webcast was hosted by Joshua Harvey, Manager of the Customer Success Team, and moderated by Carla Rydholm, Director of Product Management. The guest for the webcast was Kevin Miles, Manager of Library Services at Norton Rose Fulbright. The discussion covered several important topics including transparency, data interpretation, and user adoption.
“We get questions all the time about stats, and about graphs, and how those are created or composed,” Kevin Miles noted. “And one of the things that people learn very quickly is that this stuff does just not fly out of thin air, and it requires people and algorithms to put this together.”
“Using data can create those ‘aha’ moments, where you connect what’s happened before with the decision or a situation that you and your client are facing right now,” added Carla Rydholm.
“Lex Machina, in particular, is very much a competitive intelligence tool,” Kevin Miles observed. “And so we use this to get background or information on every facet of the case so that we can advise the client on the best course of action.”
