legal robots

Summary: The legal industry is benefiting from the use of robots in its everyday standardized tasks, but how far will robots encroach into the job market of the legal industry?

The legal world has already seen the emergence of robotics into the industry. Some predict robots will take over all positions, except the ones they cannot perform. They already can perform basic tasks that generally recent law school graduates are assigned to do. So what does that mean for the rest of the legal industry? They are going to have to get used to working alongside robots.

  
What
Where


There are some definite positives to this future. Attorneys will be able to focus their time and efforts on the things that robots cannot perform, such as meeting with clients and gathering information for a case. Robots can focus on sorting through past cases to gather related information for the current case.

Robots will become the support staff for attorneys, similar to how doctors have techs to help them deliver healthcare. They will help with the cost of high-volume/low-value legal services such as document review. The list of tasks that robots can perform is growing each day.

Companies that provide these robot services are known as legal process outsourcing companies (LPOs). Corporate legal departments, service providers, and law firms are utilizing LPOs to review and standardize documents, among other tasks. The impact they have had already on efficiency, risk mitigation, and reducing time and cost on human review is significant.
