In a new two-part Thomson Reuters’ Legal Executive Institute podcast, Joe Raczynski, Legal Technologist and Futurist with Thomson Reuters Legal, discusses the hot topic of autonomous vehicles and their impact on the legal industry with attorney Gail Gottehrer, partner at Akerman LLP.
In part 1 of the podcast, (available below) the pair discuss how the technology behind driverless cars continues to evolve and who are the main players in this area. In part 2, they will discuss the opportunities for law firms in this evolving area. For example, law firms focusing on autonomous vehicles can advise clients about various issues including: (i) changes in insurance coverage models; (ii) regulatory changes in affected industries, (iii) workforce/employment issues, (iv) data privacy and security issues, and (v) anticipating potential use of data in litigation.
