"Geographic Information Systems in the Legal Profession" will be presented by Z. Kent Sullivan of the Hamilton Duncan firm in Surrey.  Kent is one of the foremost authorities on the use of Geographic Information Systems (“GIS”) in the legal profession. 

The presentation describes what GIS is as well as the vision and opportunity for using GIS in the legal profession.  Kent will demonstrate how GIS can greatly enhance a lawyer’s ability to communicate, convince, and prevail on legal arguments and negotiations. He’ll also illustrate some GIS exhibits successfully introduced in trial and explain how those exhibits were critical in the outcome of the case – i.e. Success. The presentation provides a discussion of one of the leading cases in Canada on the interactive use of GIS in litigation and discusses what might be done to overcome some of the pitfalls encountered in that case.

Kent is passionate about getting the message out to his legal colleagues, that we too can take advantage of the many benefits of GIS and in a way that satisfies court rules.  GIS can greatly assist lawyers in meeting or exceeding client needs in this ever changing and rapidly evolving world of information technology.
