With the continuous advancements in tech there are predictions of the overall automation of legal tasks through the use of Artificial Intelligence systems, enduringly called “LawBots”. Lawbots are set to change the way legal professionals provide routine legal tasks, such as the drafting of legal opinions, briefs or contracts by automatizing the drafting process through a series of questions, allowing parties to draft their own opinion, brief or contract and legal professionals merely providing guidance on the contract robotically generated, thereby allowing legal professionals to spend more time on the application, enforcement and deliverance of legal arguments and strategies to win a client’s case.
Join our masterclass with an experienced LawBot developer to engage in a thought-provoking discussion on the use of LawBots in the delivery of routine legal services and impact and effect same is said to have, including the advantages and disadvantages of same and how one may develop your own LawBot.
