It's happening, there are no two ways about it. Technology is changing the way lawyers work, just like it is changing the way other professions work.
We need to be proactive and embrace technology, not fear it.
The rise of virtual assistants and other technology platforms mean that lawyers and legal businesses are able to do their jobs more quickly and more efficiently.

Artificial intelligence is changing the way lawyers think, the way they do business and the way they interact with clients. Artificial intelligence is more than legal technology. It is the next great hope that will revolutionize the legal profession. Change can be brought on through pushing existing ideas.

AI, sometimes referred to as cognitive computing, refers to computers learning how to complete tasks traditionally done by humans. The focus is on computers looking for patterns in data, carrying out tests to evaluate the data and finding results.
