What is Legal Digital Transformation?

What are the different “C”s of changes in the legal sector that can benefit from digital transformation?

What tools and technologies can contribute to digital transformation in the legal industry?

Cultural Change

Communication and Collaboration

  1. The legal sector industry can benefit the most from video conferencing because lawyers depend on face-to-face consultations and meetings to settle deals, communicate with clients and improve their practices. Video conferencing allows legal professionals to carry out all these tasks at their convenience, thereby boosting productivity and efficiency.
  2. Video conferencing is a practical approach to reducing travel expenses and time as it allows its users to mimic a professional meeting room setting and environment. If legal professionals have cases with witnesses scattered all over the country or overseas and courthouses in other cities or clients located in different parts of the world, video conferencing facilitates these connections to continue successfully: all through technology that is reliable and enables a crisp, clear sound.
  3. Since people are unable to travel to other countries amid the COVID-19 pandemic, video conferencing tools can help legal experts connect remotely. You can integrate the video conferencing APIs into your existing website or app to interact with clients quickly.
  1. Technology has dramatically transformed how to practice the law and what it means to be a lawyer — whether at a law firm or in-house. And this transformation is evident both in terms of being connected to the office at all times and the improved ability to access information anytime and from anywhere.
  2. Driven by that connectivity, long days at the office are enabling more flexible arrangements. Remote work in the corporate legal sector has now become a possibility due to the emerging technologies. Also, the COVID-19 pandemic has pushed the legal industry to work from home just like many other industries.
  3. Working from home for lawyers has prompted a realization that working remotely is wallet-friendly and technologically feasible. It is believed that the trend of working from home will continue even after the governments allow movements as people would be scared to resume their working styles until they get a vaccine for COVID-19.
  4. Using real-time communication apps, legal experts can communicate both with their clients and co-workers. It will help in enabling quick and efficient communication and collaboration.
  1. Also, legal firms and institutions can organize webinars for law interns to ensure that their practice and education are not affected due to adverse conditions and restricted movements.
  1. Using automated legal chatbots, lawyers can save the time they spend in answering small queries of clients. They will be able to focus on competencies that matter a lot to them, thereby offering better service to clients.
  2. For example, an AI-based legal chatbot can help clients arrange meetings with lawyers based on their requirements. Also, chatbots can help legal organizations generate more leads by carrying out intelligent conversations with clients and encouraging them to provide their contact information.

Casework Consolidation

  1. eDiscovery Software
    eDiscovery software enables legal experts to process, review and generate electronic documents as part of the investigation or lawsuit. It can help attorneys explore valuable information related to any case while mitigating risks, pacing up resolutions and reducing costs.
  2. eDiscovery is the legal procedure using which parties can exchange information and evidence with one another digitally. eDiscovery software is not just used to review documents, but also to conduct internal investigations and tax audits. The software works, depending on various factors, including the data you want to review, the length of review, the amount and the complexity of data. It reduces the cost of extensive paperwork.
