AI takes hold in law firms
Abstract: Artificial intelligence (AI) — which is defined as computers that perform tasks that typically require human intelligence — climbed out of the pages of science fiction and into the real world some time ago. But the legal industry has only recently begun to embrace its possibilities. While AI already is making an impact in so-called Big Law, it also can help attorneys and administrators at smaller firms. Moreover, as firms increasingly commoditize legal services, clients expect firms to use every tool they can to expedite work and cut costs. This article examines how law firms can use AI to their advantage.
