Neota Logic, creators of the leading artificial intelligence platform for legal services, is pleased to be supporting the Legal Apps Competition at Cornell Tech in conjunction with Littler Mendelson, the world’s largest labor and employment firm representing management, Cornell Law School, and Cornell Tech, Cornell University’s center of graduate education and research in New York City.

The event will be held on the evening of December 3rd at the Tata Innovation Center at the Cornell Tech campus on New York’s Roosevelt Island.

Students from the Cornell Law course, Delivering Legal Services Through Technology, will present the expertise-automation apps they have developed this semester with the Neota platform. The apps address real-world challenges posed by three not-for-profit organizations:

Scott Rechtschaffen, Littler’s Chief Knowledge Officer, who co-teaches the course with staff members of Neota Logic, commented, “I look forward to seeing all of the hard work of this interdisciplinary group of students come to fruition. It’s important for the next generation of lawyers to understand the intersection of technology and law to give them hands-on technical skills needed as they embark on careers in the legal profession.”

“We’re excited at Cornell Tech to offer our students the opportunity to explore the vibrant legal tech arena while developing applications for the underserved non-profit community,” said Matthew D’Amore, Associate Dean at Cornell Tech and Professor of the Practice at Cornell Law School.

Kevin Mulcahy, VP of Education and Community programs at Neota Logic noted that, “We’re extremely proud of our collaboration with Cornell Law School and Litter. We wish all teams involved success on the night and look forward to these applications providing a great community benefit.”

The panel of judges includes Joe Breda, President of Bloomberg Law, Meredith Williams-Ranges, Chief Knowledge Officer at Shearman & Sterling and Eduardo Penalver, Dean of Cornell Law School.

The event, which is open to the public at no charge, beings at 5:30pm. Attendees can register here and the event will also be available to be viewed online via live stream.
