CFRED’s 9th LegalTech Seminar- The Promise of Technology Assisted Dispute Resolution: An Arbitration Practitioner’s Perspective by Ms. Sabrina Lee

07 November, 2019

In recent years, technology has disrupted many industries, from retail (Amazon) to taxis (Uber) to hotels (Airbnb).  Many observers believe that technology will bring similar changes to the legal industry, including to dispute resolution, an area that is traditionally thought to be the sole province of highly trained human judges or arbitrators exercising good judgment honed through years of experience.  But is this promise overhyped?  This talk examines whether new technology such as online dispute resolution platforms or artificial intelligence really threatens to disrupt the dispute resolution industry, from the perspective of a practitioner of US litigation and international arbitration.

Date:              7 November 2019 (Thursday) 

Time:             12:30 – 2:00 p.m.

Venue:      The CUHK Graduate Law Centre, 2/F Bank of America Tower, Central
