If your firm is drowning in legal paperwork, this article could be the best 3-minute investment you will ever make.
In it, we’ll explore the technology that exists right now and how savvy firms are using it to scale their legal operations with remarkable results.
I have long been banging the drum for businesses to utilise automation to provide better service and find efficiencies. Now, AI is taking automation to a new level, and it will revolutionise every industry worldwide sooner than you think!
In this article, you’ll discover how Artificial Intelligence (AI) and Machine Learning (ML) are transforming the legal industry, which has long been plagued by time-consuming tasks.
The article provides an overview of how AI and ML can be used in a law firm to automate tasks such as :
Document and discovery review
Quick summarisation of large volumes of information
Automatic identification of key terms and clauses in contracts
Introduction to AI and Machine Learning
Artificial Intelligence (AI) and Machine Learning (ML) are transforming Professional Service providers by making it easier to review and understand large volumes of complex data and providing valuable insights into case-related information. This can help law firms to save time and resources and significantly improve the efficiency of their operations.
AI and ML-based system can automatically identify key terms and clauses in contracts, such as expiration dates, termination clauses, and liability provisions. This can help lawyers quickly identify relevant information and make more informed decisions.
An AI and ML-based system can analyse a large collection of emails, memos, and other communications and automatically identify those that are pertinent to the case.
Using AI and ML for discovery review can help to improve the accuracy and efficiency of the discovery process, reducing the risk of missing relevant information. Furthermore, AI and ML can help lessen the discovery process cost.
Due Diligence Review
A law firm can use an AI and ML-based system to identify critical information and extract specific data types, such as key terms and clauses in contracts, expiration dates, termination clauses, or liability provisions. Additionally, a system can be trained to identify common contract issues, such as missing clauses or ambiguous language, which can help to anticipate and address potential problems in a matter of seconds not hours.
Language translation is another area where AI and ML can help a law firm. AI and ML-based systems can automatically translate legal documents from one language to another, making them easier to review and understand.
AI and ML-based systems can summarise critical information way faster and more accurately than humanly possible. This advantage alone is worth investigating the technology further, given the time it will save you and your clients.
AI and ML can be used in many practical ways with accuracy and efficiency to improve operations.
By using AI and ML for document review, discovery, due diligence, language translation, and summarisation, law firms can save time and resources and make better decisions.
The Law Firm of the Future
While AI and ML can greatly enhance operations in a law firm, it does not replace the need for human lawyers. The technology can assist, but the work needs to be reviewed and adjusted for accuracy and compliance. Utilising AI is like having the ultimate legal assistant by your side who works like a machine (yes, that was intended….).
It is vital to mention that AI and ML will also help improve the quality of legal services by providing lawyers with more time to focus on their work’s strategic and complex aspects. In turn, this will help increase the value offered and, ultimately, help to grow the firm without the stress and overwhelm that appear when scaling operations.
