Many lawyers hear “innovation” and “legal technology” and fear that artificial intelligence will replace lawyers. Don’t be afraid, embrace the many opportunities! By leveraging both innovation and technology, lawyers can not only become more efficient but also improve legal-service delivery quality and obtain better outcomes for their clients. Savvy clients expect their attorneys to innovate, use technology effectively, and work closely with them to continuously improve the value provided through their services. Don’t get lost in the “robot lawyer” hype! Innovation is about more than shiny new technology. Focus on building the skills your future clients will demand.
