CanLII President Sarah Sutherland Interviewed on How Data and the Law Interact

Sarah Sutherland, the President and CEO of the Canadian Legal Information Institute, was interviewed on the most recent episode of the podcast The Geek in Review.

She was asked about her new book Legal Data and Information in Practice: How Data and the Law Interact:

"We have a fun and informative discussion about how the legal industry, ranging from courts, firms, law schools and start-ups are leveraging data within their organizations and how new technologies are allowing us to do amazing things with data that we could only dream about a few short years ago. While many of us in the law understand the messiness of the data we produce and collect, however Sutherland points out that there are many industries where the data is messy, and they are using that data to increase the value of the services they provide."

"That being said, there are still a number of ways in which we create and collect data that need improvement to support current and potential uses. Leveraging data in better ways helps the legal industry across the spectrum. Whether that is the large law firms assisting global corporations, or helping individuals with access to justice needs. Sutherland’s hope is that a legal industry that has better structure data results in better outcomes for everyone needing legal services."

The podcast is co-hosted by Greg Lambert and Marlene Gebauer.
