Behind the Scenes: Legal Metrics and Analytics

Thursday, March 15, 2018 12:00-1:00pm

 Presented by Jonathan Germann

 

Expanding on a recent article, Legal Analytics – Researcher Beware?, this session will explore the opportunities and potential problems surrounding legal analytics.   What should information professionals consider before purchasing and relying on these emerging products?  To answer this, legal analytic providers will be compared and black box algorithms such as indexing, natural language processing, and machine learning will be examined from the ground up. 

Jonathan Germann, JD/MLIS, is the digital services librarian at Georgia State College of Law.  He also works for Irell & Manella LLP as a systems and research analyst.  His current professional interests are systematically exploring untapped information on the world wide web API and programmatically creating custom datasets.
