Colin Rule and the rise of online dispute resolution

When the Apple II was released in 1977, it was among the first computers marketed and mass-produced for businesses and individuals alike. Apple would later adopt the slogan “The computer for the rest of us,” hinting at its technology’s broad appeal among a nonexpert consumer base. It is fitting, then, that as a grade school student in 1980, Colin Rule first dabbled in the world of online dispute resolution (ODR) by running a bulletin board out of his bedroom in North Texas with the help of his Apple II Plus.
Legal Tech landscape in Central Eastern Europe - subjective list by Roman Koch
When analyzing the Legal Tech landscape around the world, you can get the impression that this market is mainly limited to solutions offered by suppliers from the USA, UK, Germany or Australia. While the Legal Tech market has reached a certain maturity in these countries, Central Eastern Europe is a place where there is still a huge area for development and where disruptive and scalable startups are also emerging and which have the potential to succeed on a global scale. In today's article I would like to present a subjective list of Legal Tech solutions from CEE regions that are worth noting.
New Zealand government algorithm charter leads the way
Building on previous artificial intelligence (AI) research by the New Zealand Law Society, the Charter emphasizes that more complex algorithms can be used to support human decision-making, helping the Government to better understand New Zealand and New Zealanders.

GPT-3 – A Game Changer For Legal Tech?
Tech circles have been lit up over the last few weeks following the unveiling by OpenAI of GPT-3 (Generative Pretrained Transformer 3), a new type of pretrained language model capable of generating natural language text and computer code with the most minimal of inputs. Could it be a game changer for legal technology, especially in relation to NLP tools that analyse text, as well as doc generation systems?
Three keys to providing successful online legal services
In 2011 Marc Andreessen said, “software is eating the world.” Nearly a decade later, the digital world is also “eating” or consuming legal services. How can lawyers, traditional law firms, and company legal departments address the digital transformation of their services?

Managing your contract lifecycle

The Covid-19 crisis has created an environment where working from anywhere has suddenly become the “new normal”. This has put digitalisation on the map for companies that want to achieve independence and flexibility in the way they operate. The legal department is not usually on the radar for many companies looking to drive digitalisation and automation. However, with today’s existing tools and capabilities, it can become an area that is at the forefront of automation in any company. One particularly good example is the management of contractual relationships using a Contract Lifecycle Management solution.

Now more than ever, contracts — and the data intelligence goldmine they hold — are key to organizations who hope to stay agile as their business adapts to changing economic landscapes and changing business relationships.
