Artificial Intelligence continues to challenge law firms to find ways of developing and applying applications that will help reduce the cost of time-consuming and labor-consuming tasks for delivering legal services and improve efficiencies for the business of law. While still a mystery to many, AI is quickly finding its way into applications in law firms including:
o Legal research; e-discovery; contract review; document drafting;
o Forecasting—often referred to as predictive technology, based on precedent and review of past results to assess potential outcomes;
o Data and legal analytics—now widely relied on for managing the business side of law firms as well as the legal work;
o Timekeeping, billing, and collections;
o Intellectual property.
