Whether we are talking to a junior lawyer or a senior lawyer with decades of experience in the field of work, either of them could say that sometimes the work of a lawyer does not represent exclusively intellectual effort and specific research. The lawyer often finds himself in the position of performing repetitive tasks, which take time and reduces the efficiency of his work. This is where the new applications of technology began to intervene massively. IT has become the support branch for all the other branches of the modern society, including the legal sector. How can a lawyer use such advantages provided by the evolution of technology? First of all, give up on paper! The days when the paper was the safest way to store information are long gone. On the other hand, the use of storage clouds, dedicated servers and other solutions offered by IT companies working to support the legal sector are much safer options for data protection and encryption. Moreover, in the context of current data security issues, the correct and ethical co-optation of technology in everyday life seems to be much more puzzling than we thought.
On another line of thoughts, it has been proven that humans learn the most when they make mistakes. But it has also been proven that mistakes tend to be repeated if they are forgotten. So why not make the workflow of law firms more efficient? Technologies that use artificial intelligence have already proved their usefulness. Monthly, quarterly, annual reports can be a solid point in analyzing the methods through which the workflow improvement can be targeted on a straight, up-going line. But the process of creating those reports also require time and attention, and between the two, it is well known that time is the real problem. New software solutions on the market are capable of analyzing huge amounts of information in a record time. They can create and compare reports, they can make recommendations and, last but not least, they can represent the ace up our sleeve that we didn’t even know we needed, but we got it and it depends on every single one of us whether we decide to use it or not.
