Those headlines about a robotic lawyer are misleading. You won’t be talking to a robot when you call my office, at least not anytime soon. What the story behind the headlines is actually about is essentially a refinement of existing computerized legal research technology. That technology makes it possible to locate cases dealing with a particular topic by searching for specified words and phrases in the text of the cases. It’s a technology that has been around as long as I have been a lawyer, although it has improved dramatically since it was first introduced.
The contents of this blog, this web site, and any writings by me that are linked here, are all my personal commentary. None of it is intended to be legal advice for your situation.
