“More AI and Better AI
We heard a lot about AI in the legal marketplace the past year. Law firms are hiring robot lawyers and the technology lawyers are using is getting more complex and is automating menial tasks. 2017 will be even better. Technology tends to become better and cheaper quickly (see Moore’s Law), and 2016 was a prelude for what’s to come in 2017 for AI.
More Tech Savvy Lawyers
In the ABA Legal Technology Survey, lawyers showed that they are pretty well versed in technology, but 2017 will see an even higher adoption rate because more tools will be available in 2017 and law firm structures are changing (think virtual practice and working remotely). Also, client expectations and various state bar rules requiring that lawyers become familiar with technology will dictate the adoption rate, and those who adopt the technology will fare better in the market.”
