Leveraging AI In The Legal Industry

By: Paul Bracht


Various industries have been bracing for a wave of disruptive technologies with advancements such as Artificial Intelligence (AI). The legal industry in particular could benefit from these emerging tools. The advent of AI, or in this case, “law bots,” can help mitigate or alleviate some of their key challenges, such as high costs and evolving regulatory complexities.

By adopting a programmable and trainable Natural Language Processing (NLP) and Machine Learning (ML) capable AI, lawyers can be freed-up to focus on high-value objectives through automation or assistance in various tasks like document reviews and analysis, contract management, billing, and invoicing.

Additionally, with the ability to have real-time access to sources like legal databases, government websites, and more, law bots can help keep lawyers up-to-date on important information. In turn, lawyers can give their clients the best service possible.

An Understanding Workflow Optimizer

Law Bots are conversational AI or bots designed to assist in legal research, contract reviews, and document analysis. They’re even capable of more complicated jobs like document drafting and litigation prediction. With such intricate capability, how exactly is it possible?

  1. Machine Learning (ML)

    1. With machine learning algorithms, law bots can be trained to improve accuracy and performance. This feature is made possible by collecting relevant legal data, user input, and other databases and analyzing it.

  2. Named Entity Recognition (NER)

    1. NER is a type of Natural Language Processing used to identify and store important information the user inputs. Things such as names, locations, and dates. It could then call upon it to display accurate and personalized responses.

  3. A combination of ML and NER allows a law bot to provide the most relevant and accurate information possible.

  4. Legal Research & Knowledge Management

    1. With access to various sources like legal databases, government websites, legal blogs and publications, and a law firm’s custom knowledge management system, law bots can draw from a wide pool to give the most clear-cut answers to user inquiries.

    Law bots are not only a tool for basic inquiries, but it is also used to reduce the turnaround time when researching and analyzing cases—leading to reduced labor costs and better results for the client.

  5. Case Management & Workflow Automation

    1. Whether through integrating law bots with existing management and workflow automation tools or through the custom development of one, specific needs and tasks like document reviews and analysis, contract management, and billing and invoicing can be automated.

  6. Capable of Integration with Other Tools

    1. APIs or other integration frameworks can be used to integrate law bots with the tools mentioned above alongside practice management software, document management systems, and client portals.

These features, all together, can help law firms by optimizing workflow, cutting down on turnaround time, and providing more relevant info to assist their clients and save resources. Seasoned developers can make this possible by the following:

An AI-Assisted Council

With the current technological climate skewing toward AI implementation, the law industry would benefit from and should adopt it sooner rather than later. The disruptive nature of this technology ironically brings methods to optimize and boost workflow within law firms while meeting the issues the industry faces. And to take full advantage of what law bots have to offer would mean a partnership between a software developer and a law firm.

Adopters could reduce their work’s cost and turnaround time by automating the research, document drafting, and billing and invoicing. With carefully curated data and design, law bots would also allow lawyers to focus on higher-priority objectives with their clients. Aside from this, the assistance in cases through providing up-to-date information on regulation and compliance requirements will ensure that defense is as tight as can be.

Al has the potential to revolutionize the legal industry by being an efficiency-focused tool. However, it's important to recognize it as a tool designed to enhance a lawyer's ability and, in time, provide better access to justice. In the end, a law bot helps the human touch and sensibility that a lawyer brings to their clients.
