If you’re traveling without a map, you might get lost, and if you’re litigating without data, you very well may lose your case. In this On The Road episode, host Joe Patrice talks to Ed Walters and Michael Sander about how data analytics make legal services less risky for clients and give a strategic advantage to lawyers in litigation. They discuss how data analytics show the large-scale trends in different areas of the law. Lawyers can use this information to set client expectations and potentially expand their services.

Ed Walters is CEO at Fastcase, adjunct professor of law at Georgetown University, and is the editor of the recently-released “Data-Driven Law.”

Michael Sander is the founder of Docket Alarm, director of analytics at Fastcase, and a former IP litigator and software engineer.
