SESSION TWO – Legal Tech, Procedure, and the Future of Adversarialism

This session will consider the implications of the new tech tools for civil litigation and the adversarial system, particularly the ways civil procedure rules may need to adapt as legal tech continues its advance. We will consider, among other things, legal tech’s implications for due process and meaningful participation within the legal system; the promise and peril of the migration to remote proceedings, including virtual trials; and the ways continued advances in legal technologies will shift and perhaps even re-set several of the system’s procedural cornerstones, from proportionality in discovery to the work product doctrine.
