AI in law
Global Legal Post talks to Hogan Lovells new innovation head Stephen Allen, who discusses how AI will begin to enhance decision making affect the industry. Speaking on AI, he states that “lawyers using the technology with triumph over those who do it ‘the old way’”. Mr Allen also comments on The Bionic Lawyer project, which aims to create tools and frames of reference that enable a common dialogue to ease trust and momentum in a changing environment. Elsewhere, Dan Reed argues that AI in the legal profession has become a buzzword that is ‘in danger of losing its meaning.’ He states that the deployment of AI in law so far has been relatively primitive, but that the opportunities the technology brings for the future are significant and market-changing. Dan calls for change in the parts of the legal profession that are still in denial about just how fundamentally technology is revolutionising the legal landscape.
