Leveraging AI in legal: the new world of AI-powered contracts



Artificial intelligence (AI): buzzword of the year. In some it conjures a feeling of modernity, in others of concern. But what does it really mean? And how can it be applied to such a traditional sector as the legal one?

Contract management is an area that is ripe for innovation and digital transformation. Often contracting processes are bureaucratic, burdensome and a major source of delays. Yet new technological solutions are emerging quickly, affording the opportunity for AI to manage much of the process while freeing up people to focus on more strategic tasks.

Are you prepared for the pace of change? This webinar will answer the following questions:

  • What is AI?
  • How can you leverage AI in your legal organisation?
  • How can you migrate your business to an AI-focused one?
  • What results can be expected?
