Reviewing 35 AI Applications for Law

Based on Edgar Alan Rayo’s assessment of companies’ offerings in the legal field, current applications of AI appear to fall in six major categories:

  1. Due diligence – Litigators perform due diligence with the help of AI tools to uncover background information. We’ve decided to include contract review, legal research and electronic discovery in this section.
  2. Prediction technology – An AI software generates results that forecast litigation outcome.
  3. Legal analytics – Lawyers can use data points from past case law, win/loss rates and a judge’s history to be used for trends and patterns.
  4. Document automation – Law firms use software templates to create filled out documents based on data input.
  5. Intellectual property – AI tools guide lawyers in analyzing large IP portfolios and drawing insights from the content.
  6. Electronic billing – Lawyers’ billable hours are computed automatically.

Rayo explores the major areas of current AI applications in law, individually and in depth here.
