After a successful event in May 2017, the Illinois Supreme Court Commission on Professionalism is again hosting “The Future Is Now” Conference. On May 2, the Commission will host the conference focusing on innovations and practices impacting the delivery of legal services and the legal profession as a whole.
The conference will have ten speakers with each addressing different issues impacting the profession, including the practicality of artificial intelligence, legal technology like algorithms and data analytics, best practices for retaining diverse talent, equal justice as a bipartisan issue, criminal justice reform, and the entrepreneurial spirit. Illinois Supreme Court Chief Justice Lloyd Karmeier will deliver opening remarks about the importance of innovation and the need for lawyers to address new ways to better serve clients.
The conference will be held at Venue SIX10 (610 S. Michigan Avenue in Chicago), beginning at 10 a.m. and ending at 4:45 p.m. The complete conference schedule is posted on the event website.
