Artificial Intelligence and Legal Research: CARA, Lexis Answers, and Bloomberg Points of Law -- Gift Card Drawing after the Training
This mini-training will take place in the Instructional Lab in the DCLI (Room 130A), which is behind the computer lab, near the Legal Writing Center.
The training will include quick demonstrations of several AI applications in legal research including CARA (Case Analysis Research Assistant), a new product that finds cases that are potentially relevant to the subject of an uploaded legal document but which are not cited in that document. Such a resource would be useful to double-check to make sure that you have not missed a relevant case or to review an opponent's brief to see what cases were not cited. CARA can also provide suggestions of publicly-filed briefs that are relevant to the legal and factual issues in the uploaded legal document. CARA was named the American Association of Law Libraries' Product of the Year. We will also briefly examine Lexis Advance's Answers, Bloomberg Law's Points of Law, and some legal analytics products.
Light food will be provided. All attendees who correctly answer 3 out of 4 questions on a follow-up quiz will be placed in a drawing for a $10 Starbucks card. All those who correctly answer 3 of the 4 questions will also be placed in a drawing to win an Amazon Echo Dot. The drawing for the Dot will take place on November 15th and will be taken from a pool of all eligible entries from all 4 Mini-Training sessions.
