AI attorney

Summary: While artificial intelligence cannot take the place of an actual attorney, it will help the new hires at law firms tackle their immense workloads.

New attorneys are stuck with the task of handling the tedious legal work. They work grueling hours combing through intense workloads. A typical day consists of skimming hundreds of pages of articles, notes, and case precedents so that the senior attorneys can receive the important details to help build their case.


No one likes this task but lower level attorneys know it is something they have to put up with to make it up the ladder. Unfortunately, there are many attorneys that don’t make it through those tough years so one law firm is turning to artificial intelligence to get the work done. BakerHostetler has decided to use the skills of a “digital attorney” named ROSS.

The partnership between ROSS and BakerHostetler’s bankruptcy team was announced last month at Vanderbilt Law School’s “Watson, Esq.” conference for law and artificial intelligence. Co-founder of ROSS Intelligence, Andrew Arruda has confirmed that other law firms are looking to hire a ROSS of their own as well.

ROSS was designed on IBM’s Watson computer to answer questions by analyzing billions of documents to find a precise answer. ROSS even includes citations to back up its answers and becomes more accurate the more it is used. It can also track changes to laws that affect ongoing cases.
