Update from the Private Law Library Special Interest Group

26 Jul 2023 2:09 PM | Michel-Adrien Sheppard (Administrator)

The Private Law Library Special Interest Group (PLL-SIG) met June 27 for its annual general meeting.

Guest speaker Sarah Sutherland spoke to the concept of legal data – what is it, where it is going, and how Artificial Intelligence fits into the picture. It was a thought-provoking talk on a little-discussed but often thought about topic, and the PLL-SIG Chairs thank Sarah for her time. 

After the presentation, there was a round table discussion on various data initiatives amongst the firms.

We all seem to be in similar situations; we have data to track and collate, but no one knows exactly what to do with it!

The group also talked about how difficult it can be to demonstrate value through quantitative data, and the challenge of designing metrics for research services.

The meeting closed with ideas and activities for 2023-2024, including AI in law firms and competitive intelligence.

Please see the PLL-SIG Base Camp site for the complete minutes. 

We are also looking for a new co-chair; if anyone is interested, please contact Marnie Bailey or Carolyn Petrie directly. 

Thank you,

Marnie and Carolyn
