Artificial Lawyer is a site dedicated to ‘New Wave‘ legal technology. This is defined as technology that ‘performs work’ in a legal context, rather than just storing or moving legal information. Often this involves AI, but also several other types of technology.

The main areas of interest are:

  • AI (e.g. covering uses of Machine Learning and NLP/NLG)
  • Legal Bots and Expert Systems (e.g. Rules-Based systems)
  • Process and Task Automation (e.g. Advanced forms of legal doc automation)
  • Smart Contracts and Blockchain Technologies. (e.g. On-chain and off-chain self-executing contracts)
  • Advances in Legal Data Analysis (e.g. litigation outcome prediction, leveraging of legal data cores)

Artificial Lawyer seeks to cover adoption of this New Wave of legal tech among law firms and inhouse legal teams. The site welcomes guest posts from experts in the field and news from the legal community.

The site also covers the individual founders, investors and funds that help create or support legal tech start-ups, while also keeping readers informed of the bigger picture and presents the activities of the more established legal tech companies operating in this field.

The readership is global. The site is read by people in more than 20 countries. The US is the largest readership group, followed by the UK, respectively the first and second largest legal markets in the world. There is a growing readership across mainland Europe and the Asia-Pacific region, including China.

The site receives multiple thousands of unique visitors per month and the related social media footprint that shares Artificial Lawyer content further multiplies this impact and reach.

Reader demographics show a regular and growing engagement from partners, IT directors and innovation directors at law firms around the world; General Counsel, junior inhouse lawyers, legal operations and compliance/risk experts and heads of sales and procurement at major corporates, fast growth tech companies, banks and insurance companies; and also is read by people across the investment community, academics, regulators and politicians involved in this area. It is also read by students and those seeking information on potential job opportunities.
