Articles / November 6, 2019

Partner James Sherer co-authored an article published in the Autumn 2019 issue of ACEDS NY Metro Magazine, the journal for the New York chapter of the Association of Certified E-Discovery Specialists (ACEDS). The article, “AI & Ethics: The Roundtable and the Rule of Law,” discusses the recent Athens Roundtable on AI and Rule of Law, where participants analyzed and debated how to develop an ethical framework that would direct the use of artificial intelligence (AI) in support of legal endeavors and how to educate practitioners and users; and how to further, intelligently consider how an understanding of AI is key to the future of the rule of law and related practice. The article also included a cameo by Nicolas Economou, Chair of The Future Society’s Law Initiative and of the IEEE Law Committee.

Sherer co-authored the article with Cat Casey, Chief Innovation Officer for DISCO, a leading AI-powered cloud-enabled legal technology company.
