The use of artificial intelligence in law nowadays

With the development of artificial intelligence technology these days, new valences and other possible uses of it (that will come to the aid of lawyers) are gradually being discovered. Whether we are talking about special indexing software, time-tracking or contract-generating software, the conclusion is simple: the modern lawyer must adapt and keep up with the technological evolution.

This fact should not be seen as an attempt to „eliminate” the lawyer’s presence in the courtroom or in other various judicial stages. On another line of thought, the use of such technologies is proving to be extremely useful for those who want to make their office workflow more efficient. Today, however, we propose a slightly different topic: the use of new technologies to analyze the jurisprudence and various other documentation, in order to create a general overview over the fate of the new trial that is intended to be initiated.

Thus, by combining big data and data analysis technologies, reports can be created by special software that will help the litigant (or the lawyer) to „predict” in a much clearer way the process. Such technologies are currently experimental, but the benefits they can bring are immeasurable.

By analyzing an impressive number of documents and information, the software can put together extremely useful information, such as: estimated duration of the trial, exceptions and previously admitted evidence, the majority case law and the case law of a specific formation of the Court. Moreover, for cases whose complexity is not high, such software can also generate the probability of winning.
