Legal Automation White Paper
A more creative approach to using automation in Legal Operations
Legal Automation is simple really – lawyers should be able to do just that – practise law. But so often they end up handling tasks that require no legal expertise at all, adding costs to the department and reducing their ability to contribute elsewhere.
The goal should be for lawyers to be empowered to focus on practising law and to minimise distractions with operational tasks and projects.
Through legal automation, teams are empowered to create self-serve and self-help tools for their clients. This frees the lawyers to focus on the high value tasks where they can uniquely add value as experts, such as engaging in negotiation and providing strategic advice. Key learning areas:
