Computerization Take-Over of Legal Tasks Predicted to be Slow

The New York Times reports that despite the “impressive advances in artificial intelligence technology tailored for legal work,” both research and those working on the software say AIs will be adopted in “a slow, task-by-task process.” While “natural language processing has proved useful in scanning and predicting what documents will be relevant to a case,” so far “advising clients, writing legal briefs, negotiating and appearing in court” are beyond computerization. Legal experts predict “technology will unbundle aspects of legal work over the next decade or two,” ending with “highly paid lawyers” working “on the upper rungs of the legal task ladder,” with other legal services performed by nonlawyers or technology. Already, many corporate clients’ refusal “to pay high hourly rates to law firms for junior lawyers to do routine work” has led to such tasks being automated and outsourced.

From the news release of the American Association for Justice.

About This Blog

The title of this blog reflects my attitude toward those government agencies and insurance companies that routinely mistreat injured or disabled people. As a Dallas, Texas lawyer, I've spent more than 45 years trying to help those poor folk, and I have been frustrated daily by the actions of the people on the other side of their claims. (Sorry if I offended you...)
