International Conference on Contracts Proceedings

Video from the proceedings the of the International Conference on Contracts are now available in case you miss the conference this year. One of the more interesting presentations was the planetary session where Kingsley Martin of KM Standards spoke about how technology will change the way that lawyers practice as it allows for the emergence of contracts standards in a variety of key agreements that attorneys use. Kingsley used the analogy of physicians using MRI machine to show how the work of attorneys will also be aided through technological developments. I agree with him that technological advances in the law are going to continue to impact the practice. Not only does this have the possibility of making agreements better for clients, but should also increase the availability of legal services in the contract area to a greater number of clients. I will be looking forward to seeing how his product ultimately changes the way my students will draft a variety of contracts for clients.
