Lawtech ‘IRL’ – Automated Chronologies

This week’s TDN podcast is about is about one of the many ways in which AI is changing the way in which disputes lawyers work. Automated chronologies, which broadly means the process of automated classification, chronological ordering and intuitive presentation of matter-related documents, is a great illustrative example of how the much-hyped lawtech revolution is playing out in practice.

While the headlines often focus only on the distant and speculative potential of AI to in effect replace lawyers, the real-world reality is typically less grandiose, more helpful and, notwithstanding the aura of robotic impenetrability that sometimes surrounds AI, particularly good at making complicated things simpler and more digestible for people. While the singularity is nowhere near, the end of a lot of the more tedious litigation tasks, and the start of a more intuitive, collaborative and potentially enjoyable process for disputes professionals appears much closer at hand, ushered in by applications that, for example, help visualise a case as the kind of chronological narrative that all people, lawyers included, inevitably use to make sense of the world.

To present this podcast we are pleased to welcome Sophie Broch, who was an experienced commercial disputes lawyer at a number of very well-known firms and who is now the Head of Litigation solutions at Litigate are a company at the forefront of lawtech innovation, providing an operating system made for the specific purpose of making litigators’ lives easier via various innovative and practical applications of AI.
