What’s on at the Artificial Intelligence in Legal Services Summit?

MP, Lord Chancellor and Secretary of State for Justice, the Rt Hon David Gauke, and President of The Law Society and Chair, Technology and the Law Commission,  Christina Blacklaws, will open the Artificial Intelligence in Legal Services Summit, which is being held under a partnership between City & Financial Global and the Law Society of England and Wales, in Central London on the 4th June 2019.
