Workshop: Algorithmic Decision Making: The Future of Employment Law?

Tuesday, June 15, 2021 - 1:00pm to 2:30pm
Zoom webinar

Join us for this engaging presentation by GPLLM faculty member, Anthony Niblett:

Machine learning and data-driven technologies are transforming and disrupting many industries. The legal services industry is not immune. In this workshop, we'll explore how "prediction machines" can enhance our understanding of the law, increase knowledge of our legal rights, and improve access to justice. We'll explore a specific example from Canadian employment law. We'll investigate what happens if judges start using tools to assist with decision making - and what happens if these prediction machines are used instead of judges.
