The Data Science Institute at Columbia University covers how eBrevia is making tedious, error-prone legal due diligence a thing of the past. Contract review is the “bottleneck in the system,” said eBrevia Co-founder Adam Nguyen. “The software we’ve developed allows lawyers to focus on practicing law.”

Kathleen McKeown, head of Columbia’s Data Science Institute, explains the benefits of bringing artificial intelligence to corporate law, saying “the software allows legal text and data, in a sense, to be visualized. That way lawyers can decide what to look at in greater detail.” Far from making lawyers obsolete, eBrevia’s software empowers lawyers with complete knowledge of a set of contracts, making them more informed and their work even more relevant to clients’ needs.
