Legal Analytics for Risk Assessment and Decision Making

Authored by: Mona Datt  |  Contributor: Lisa Kadey

"Our paper will examine how legal analytics can assist lawyers in their roles as “predictors”. We will discuss the ways in which legal analytics can make moments of decision-making more obvious, as well as mitigate the kinds of cognitive biases that impact decision-making -- especially in situations where the potential outcomes of a decision are particularly high stakes. We will also demonstrate how legal analytics is levelling the playing field for smaller firms by providing access to the kind of in-depth case research that was previously limited to Big Law firms with a large research spend."
