Description

Although 2016 has been the breakthrough year for artificial intelligence (AI) in legal services in terms of market awareness and significant take-up, legal AI represents evolution rather than revolution. Since the first ‘robot lawyers’ started receiving mainstream press coverage, many law firms, other legal service providers and law colleges are being asked what they are doing about AI. 

Ark Group's forthcoming Robots in Law: How Artificial Intelligence is Transforming Legal Services is designed to provide a starting point in the form of an independent primer for anyone looking to get up to speed on AI in legal services. 

The book is organized into four distinct sections:

Part I: Legal AI – Beyond the hype 

Part II: Putting AI to work

Part III: AI giving back – Return on investment

Part IV: Looking ahead 

The first three present an in-depth overview, and analysis, of the current legal AI landscape; the final section includes contributions from AI experts with

connections to the legal space, on the prospects for legal AI in the short-term future.

Along with the emergence of New Law and the burgeoning lawtech start-up economy, AI is part of a new dynamic in legal technology and it is here to stay. 

The question now is whether AI will find its place as a facilitator of legal services delivery, or whether it will initiate a shift in the value chain that will transform the legal business model.
