Our Future Jobs: AI and Other 21st Century Contracting Tools – event with Parley Pro

On May 3rd at 10 – 11 AM PT, tune in for this webinar (at no charge).

The seemingly sudden appearance of ChatGPT has rattled many contract-drafters. Indeed, it has rattled a lot of professionals who make their living by stringing together complete sentences.

This session will explore the likely impact of new technologies on contract-drafters, including both lawyers and contract managers. Those new technologies go beyond Artificial General Intelligence (AGI). They include:

• Narrower forms of AI, focused on contracts
• “Smart contracts”
• Simpler-seeming tools like video conferencing systems
• The contract-drafter’s #1 tech tool (still): redlining.

We’ll focus on tools for contract drafting and negotiating (not contract-lifecycle management tools or the broader world of procurement or sales). And yes, this includes some, still-vital, tools from before the 1st century.
