Legal Innovation: Advancements in LegalTech and the Future of the Legal Profession
The legal profession is in the midst of a technological revolution. Lawyers are using new technologies and innovative practices to provide better legal services to their clients. The future of legal services will depend on how we continue to innovate around new technologies and practices.
A new generation of legal technology is helping lawyers innovate.
Legal tech, or legal technology, is the broad term for all the technologies that are used in the legal industry. Legal tech has been around for a long time and it’s changing the way lawyers work.
Many people think of computers when they hear about legal tech but there are actually many different types of tools available today: from software programs that help you organize your files or create contracts to online resources like LexisNexis® (a database containing legal information) to artificial intelligence solutions that help automate your practice management procedures.
Artificial intelligence is improving legal research and document review.
Artificial intelligence (AI) is also helping lawyers find relevant information in legal documents faster and more accurately. AI can analyze large volumes of data and provide insight into trends, patterns and correlations that would otherwise be missed by human eyes. For example, Watson is a tool that uses natural language processing technology to help lawyers identify the most relevant cases for their research — and it does so much faster than humans can manually sort through citations alone.

The future of legal services will depend on how we continue to innovate around new technologies and practices. Legal tech is a continuous process of improvements in efficiency, cost effectiveness and client satisfaction.
Innovations are driven by trends in the marketplace; for example, if there’s an increase in demand for certain types of services, then innovators will create products that fill this need. The legal profession has seen changes over time as well as technological advancements that have enabled us to better serve clients’ needs through new methods and tools such as artificial intelligence (AI), machine learning (ML) or robotics process automation (RPA).
As we look towards the future, legal innovation will be driven by the need to keep up with new technologies and practices. Artificial intelligence is improving legal research and document review. Legal AI software can help you bring the right case to court. These advancements in LegalTech will change how lawyers work with clients, but they also offer an opportunity for lawyers to rethink their jobs as professionals who help people in times of need.
