RESEARCH TO BE CONDUCTED
In-house legal teams (including Toyota’s legal team) face a high volume of tasks. Many tasks are repetitive, present low risk to the company and add little to the strategic objectives of the company. The tasks are nonetheless necessary to ensure legal and general compliance and therefore cannot be abandoned.
The research would be in the form of a case study to ideally support other research (literature or other analysis/case studies) already conducted by the PhD student in the field of advanced legal technology such as artificial intelligence. See below proposed research outcomes.
SKILLS WISH LIST
If you’re a PhD student and meet some or all the below we want to hear from you. We strongly encourage women, indigenous and disadvantaged candidates to apply:
- Law degree
- Experience with advanced legal technology and project management
Deliver a robust case study on the implementation and use of advanced technology such as artificial intelligence in an in-house legal environment. Outcomes could include:
1. Final project plan
2. Documentation of scoping of technology requirements based on workflows / priorities
3. Documentation outlining make vs buy business cases and decisions
4. Successful change management for both lawyers and clients
5. Challenges in achieving the above outcomes
6. Possible compare and contrast with other similar projects
The intern will receive $3,000 per month of the internship, usually in the form of scholarship payments.
It is expected that the intern will primarily undertake this research project during regular business hours and maintain contact with their academic mentor throughout the internship either through face-to-face or phone meetings as appropriate.
The intern and their academic mentor will have the opportunity to negotiate the project’s scope, milestones and timeline during the project planning stage.
