    Fall Study

    Group Intro

    The 2019 FALL Study Group is ready to jump start your goals. If you’ve ever considered becoming a certified paralegal with PACE® and PCCE®, now is the time to join our study group to build your study materials library.

    The benefit of being part of and involved in a study group helps to keep you focused, to build and marshal study resources, and to provide support for one another and from your Certification Ambassadors, who have each succeeded with Certification. Obtaining a credential after your name is a marvelous achievement that can and certainly will set yourself apart from other paralegals like yourself.

    An informational session about the PACE/PCCE FALL Study Group will be held on Sunday, October 20, 2019, from 2 p.m. to 4 p.m.

    Please register no later than Friday, October 18, 2019.

    Topic: The Legal Implications of Artificial Intelligence

    Artificial intelligence (AI) is increasingly being utilized by law firms and their clients. What is AI? How is it being used? To what extent should the legal system delegate to machines, decisions that affect people? Should algorithms be evaluating the strength or weakness of a case, arbitrating business disputes, allocating law enforcement resources, selecting juries, or determining criminal sentences? At what point do humans become “things” in the Internet of Things? Join us to discuss the implications of current AI use cases, including issues relating to liability, eDiscovery, Privacy, ethics and intellectual property.

    Speaker: Jerami Kemnitz 

    Jerami is a seasoned litigator with 24 years of private practice and in-house experience. He is currently Assistant General Counsel and Director of Privacy and Security for Littler Mendelson, P.C. and previously served as Global Head of eDiscovery for Wells Fargo, managing the preservation, collection, review, and production of all business divisions’ electronic data and case management for the litigation and investigations docket. Prior to that, he was founder and chair of Shook, Hardy & Bacon’s International Discovery and Data Privacy Team. Jerami is an active member of The Sedona Conference Working Group 6 on International Electronic Information Management, Discovery and Disclosure (WG6); The Sedona Conference Working Group 11 on Data Security and Privacy Liability (WG11); and chairs the Diversity Subcommittee on Attraction and the WG6 Middle East Committee.
