What the “future of law” will look like is a hot topic among legal pundits, but as eBrevia COO Adam Nguyen discusses in this guest post for Law Technology Today, in many ways, the future of law is already here. New automation technologies are enabling lawyers to spend less time on low-level operational tasks and more time on strategic thinking and creative legal analysis, a shift in focus that is improving legal service delivery in countless ways.

“Instead of paper pushing, lawyers can now perform work that clients truly value,” says Nguyen. Empowered by machine learning and other artificial intelligence technologies, both lawyers and clients can be grateful that the “future of law” has largely arrived.
