6:20 PM: The Impact of AI on Law, Education, and Governance

Guest Speaker: Gary Marchant, Regents Professor at ASU Sandra Day O'Connor College of Law

Legal services, along with accounting, consulting and other research and knowledge based professions will undergo a rapid transformation as Generative AI tools and capabilities become integrated across the value chain.

How will the interaction between client and lawyer evolve? How will this ripple through the legal system and affect the functioning of courts and legislative bodies and our interaction with the law? How should the lawyers of the future be trained? How can we all better prepare and educate ourselves to be more savvy in our interactions with the legal and education systems?

These are some of the questions likely to be touched upon in this talk by Gary Marchant, a practicing expert at the intersection of Artificial Intelligence the law, the practice of law, and education and governance.

Gary is Regents Professor at the Sandra Day O'Connor College of Law, where he teaches, researches and speaks about the governance of emerging technologies, including genomics, biotechnology, nanotechnology, neurotechnology and artificial intelligence.

He is Faculty Director of the Center for Law, Science & Innovation at ASU. Prior to joining the ASU faculty in 1999, Professor Marchant was a partner at the Washington, D.C., office of Kirkland & Ellis, where his practice focused on environmental and administrative law.

He received his J.D. from Harvard Law School, and also has a Ph.D. in genetics from the University of British Columbia and a Masters of Public Policy from the Kennedy School of Government.

Professor Marchant has authored more than 200 articles and book chapters on various issues relating to emerging technologies. Among other activities, he has served on six National Academy of Sciences committees and is an elected lifetime member of the American Law Institute and Fellow of the Association for the Advancement of Science.

He currently chairs the IEEE P2863 Working Group, charged with developing a standard for teh governance of AI by entities that develop or use AI.
