About the Campbell Law Innovation Institute

The Innovation Institute was recently launched in April of this year, and is “focused on the myriad of issues raised by the use of advanced technologies in the delivery of legal services, including artificial intelligence (AI), machine learning and quantum computing.” CLII is centered on “investigating and teaching the perspectives, theories, and practical means to prepare lawyers and students to address the profound changes that new technologies are bringing.”

From its inception, UniCourt has been a data partner and Advisory Board member of CLII and our Director of Content & Data Acquisition, Jeff Cox, a Campbell Law alumni, is the current Chair of the CLII Advisory Board. 

As Jeff shared back in April, “The Innovation Institute addresses a critical component of pushing for progress in the legal profession: educating legal professionals on leading technology solutions and how to make the most of advances in AI and big data to build more robust, rewarding and profitable law practices, while better serving the clients in their community.”

UniCourt’s role with CLII is concentrated on providing law students with access to AI normalized legal data and our Legal Data APIs to teach the next generation of legal professionals the latest in legal technology for business development, competitive intelligence, knowledge management, and process automation.
