Episode Notes

As technology continues to permeate society more and more, companies are exploring how advancements in tech can improve the legal profession. Many of these institutions are researching ways to make the legal system more efficient for all stakeholders through information technology. Where can lawyers who are interested in this growth industry learn about the progress being made from thought leaders in the field?

In this episode of Law Technology Now, host Monica Bay speaks with Stanford Program in Law, Science and Technology Executive Director Roland Vogl about the upcoming 2016 CodeX FutureLaw Conference. Roland reflects on his time as a student in The Stanford Program in International Legal Studies (SPILS) and how that path led him to work as an intellectual property lawyer and ultimately a Lecturer in Law at Stanford Law School. He then explains the creation of The Stanford Center for Computers and the Law – CodeX, their growing interest in big data law, machine learning, and natural language processing in the law, and their aim to facilitate legal empowerment through information technology. The conversation then shifts to the upcoming 2016 CodeX FutureLaw Conference and the panels, such as “Moot Court 2020: Legal Tech on Trial,” that will be presented. Roland wraps up the interview with a discussion of diversity in the profession, the lack of women presenting at conferences, and the efforts CodeX is making to ensure greater diversity at theirs.

Dr. Roland Vogl is currently the executive director of the Stanford Program in Law, Science and Technology (LST) and is a lecturer in law at Stanford Law School. He also researches international technology law through the Transatlantic Technology Law Forum (TTLF) and focuses his efforts on legal informatics work carried out in the Center for Legal Informatics (CodeX). Roland holds both a Dr.iur. (JSD) and a Mag.iur. (JD) from Leopold-Franzens University of Innsbruck, Austria, as well as a JSM from Stanford Law School.
