How Can Policymakers Encourage More Robo-Lawyers?

by Morgan Stevens

Advances in digital automation could enable many individuals and businesses to access better and cheaper legal services. Robo-lawyers—tech-enabled legal services—could help clients review contracts, draft patent applications, write legal briefs, and more. Unfortunately, state laws and professional licensing requirements significantly limit the development of technology-enabled legal services that would compete with existing legal services.  These restrictions on robo-lawyers ultimately hurt consumer welfare, especially for many Americans who do not have access to adequate legal representation.

Join the Center for Data Innovation for a panel discussion about the potential for AI-enabled robo-lawyers to provide legal services, the challenges in providing these services today, and steps policymakers can take to allow the development of tech-enabled legal services.
