About the Content Team

In line with our twin goals of serving companies and students, the Content team is responsible for designing and deploying bespoke Virtual Experience Programs (VEPs) for our corporate partners.

  • Conducting quality assurance of program content ahead of program launches

  • Work closely in a fast-paced and evolving environment with the rest of the content team and client-facing team to ensure a high quality work overall!

A virtual Experience Program
As mentioned in the video instructions, the firm is seeking to adopt more artificial inteligence technologies into its way of working. These will allow us to comodify some of the more labor intensive, routine and manual work often undertaken by paralegals, trainees and junior associates and offer them to clients at a lower cost and with quicker turnaround times. It will also allow us to fully utilize the talent of our junior legal staff by giving them more time and opportunity to take on technically demanding legal work which is what they signed up for.
At present the firm is considering purchasing a subscription to a new machine learning ai technology that can analyse data from a number of internal and external sources, extract the key information that we instruct it to, and provide a clear summary in a client ready format. We are excited about the prospect of utilizing this ai as it offers us clear advantages in due diligence, business development and legal research work amongst others.
However, before the firm commits to adopting the AI we need to carry out a thorough risk assessment and legal review. As part of this, we need to understand the IP and copyright law implicatons for data used in an AI process. Could you design a process where we can reliably assess this when using data from a number of sources? The sources we need to consider are:
1. Clyde & Co data from internal sources;
2. External data that is publicly accessible; and
3. External data that is accessible through a license.
Your supervisor just emailed you a background note which provides an overview of IP rights that might affect data source used in AI processes (however, please do supplement the points on IP and copyright law with desktop research as necessary).
Your supervisor have also attached a (largely blank) flowchart that you can populate to set out the process. Our tech innovation team thought it was best this completed by legal staff.
