How Young Lawyers are Changing How They do Their Work

Published

on

A revolution of sorts is afoot, and it’s starting to overtake the legal industry. We’re talking about artificial intelligence (AI) and how it is making its way into law firms all over the country and indeed the world, changing the very fundamentals of how lawyers are going about their work. Today’s young attorneys would be wise to learn about AI in the legal sphere and how they can prepare themselves to manage the change. 

Generally, lawyers will come across two kinds of AI: reactive and limited memory. Reactive AIs respond to human input with pre-determined algorithms, such as a game of chess played against the computer. Limited memory AIs rely on pre-programmed inputs and the AI’s observations over time, such as with self-driving cars, natural language processors (think: Siri), and machine learning. Machine learning happens to be the most popular within the legal industry. 

Essentially, this is the science of ensuring computers can learn and act as humans do, improving their learning over time by being fed data, observations and real-world interactions. This represents a big change from traditional software, based on the fact that it utilizes inductive rather than deductive reasoning.

Once it is given a sufficient amount of information (such as a million Word documents), it can intuit the basic rules that are most likely to apply to anyone document. For example, a spell check can adapt to each user’s writing style, resulting in recommendations that are based on the English language, to be sure, but also on someone’s particular writing style. Not only that, it can edit a Word document, sure, but it can also create a document based on what the lawyer and client requirements, as it is already familiar with the structure, format, and style of the requested document, says the ABA.

Preparing for AI in Law Firms

As AI tools become more advanced and integrated, young attorneys must prepare for this exciting new legal landscape. Many in the industry think traditional legal paths will become obsolete with the addition of AI, but this simply isn’t true. It will free up lawyers’ time that could be better spent on investigating cases and integrating with clients. 

Attorneys should take the time now to prepare for AI integration by becoming familiar with the technology and how it works, vowing to grow with the new legal culture these changes will bring. Becoming technologically sophisticated will help them understand the benefits and drawbacks of software tools so they know how they work, where errors can crop up, and how to discuss these effects of these tools with more technologically-sophisticated professionals, such as developers and IT. 

Attorneys must also start getting familiar with legal writing to improve their drafting skills. In essence, writing proficiency and technological proficiency will go hand in hand. 

With knowledge of AI, attorneys can select the best tool and realize the best way to use those tools for each client and case. Working with the right AI tools, attorneys can foster greater knowledge of fitting AI work products to meet and exceed client needs. As this process becomes familiar, attorneys can display far-reaching legal skill that’s traditionally been reserved for more experienced, and older, attorneys.

A Focus on Strategy

Today’s lawyers must also focus on the human element of the legal practice rather than the technical. AI is still really only capable of performing technical work. But while AI will certainly exceed at the technical aspects of the law, this doesn’t mean attorney input can go by the wayside. Their input is still needed in order to relate the clients’ goals to the machine’s tasks. This means they will have to emphasize strategic guidance over tactical performance.

Attorneys trained in tactical performance know how to make a reasoned and informed recommendation. But that takes time, effort and energy to do thoroughly. This process can easily be automated and augmented with AI tools. 

The Millennial Shift

The so-called Millennial Shift offers up a great competitive opportunity for today’s law firms. In the past, firms had to compete for talent mainly through dollars. But now with the Millennial Attorney’s emphasis being on different values, law firms can compete for talent in a multitude of ways. The Millennial Attorney will be attracted to law firms that value technology and process improvement to increase efficiency. The Millennial Attorney will also value proactive communication and collaborative strategic decision-making, better project management, and intellectual curiosity.

Millennial Attorneys will indeed work hard to accomplish the firm’s goals; however, if they get wind of a less strenuous, more efficient method of achieving similar results, they’ll explore it and even insist on it. They will want to switch up an age-old process so they don’t have to work as hard, whether through the use of AI technology or better coordination among team members. A desire for increased efficiency: this is what the next generation of lawyers wants. AI can meet that desire. 

Evisort is here to help young lawyers fit in seamlessly with emerging technology. Get in touch now for a free demo to see how AI can automate many time-consuming tasks, including contract management.

How A Broke Journalist Was Able To Create A 6-Figure Coaching Company

Published

on

Many freelancers dream of living a financially free life filled with success. That can be very hard at times due to the trap of doing everything yourself. You never should. Many entrepreneurs are stuck in “solopreneur world” stressing and overdoing themselves when they can make the same amount of money delegating sales and fulfillment. Check this out:

Alex Schlinsky is the Founder and CEO of Prospecting On Demand™, a company specializing in helping coaches, consultants, and agency owners implement the systems and strategies necessary to scale their company and become successful CEOs. Over 125 entrepreneurs have built 6-figure companies utilizing the POD™ community and training.

Alex is decorated speaker and author, making appearances at college universities and being featured in renowned publications such as Entrepreneur Magazine, Forbes, and more. It wasn’t always the limelight for Alex. He’s had many successes, challenges, and major responsibilities. Here are some of his: 

‘Can you tell me the story of your prior successes, challenges, and major responsibilities?’

Successes:

Alex has a major list of successes. After working hard on Prospecting On-Demand, Alex has over 500 students. This leads him to many other successes like speaking at his alma mater UCF for Leadership Week educating others on how to scale their businesses. Not only does he mentor over 500 students but owns a 6-figure marketing agency working with personal injury attorneys and owns a 6-figure coaching company. Alex has spoken for USF NSLS inductions 4 times and was published in Entrepreneur, Forbes, and many more agencies. To add the cherry on top, 125+ agencies/coaches hit 6-figures with POD™ and about 20 have hit 7-figures with POD™. A personal achievement of Alex is successfully achieving his childhood dream of working with the Miami Dolphins.

Challenges:

As for challenges Alex explains it best.

“As I got started: Working part-time while at school. Post-graduation realizing my college path led to a dead-end and I had to restart at square 1. With no corporate job, I’ve always wanted to figure it out on my own led to some LEAN years. Working for the Dolphins and in MMA meant working weekends, long hours, deadlines, and very low pay. Struggled to pay rent for some time while my wife worked as a waiter.”

More specific: Mostly great investments in coaching, but one in particular ($30k investment) crippled me for a while. 

Major Responsibilities:

Alex also had a lot of major responsibilities as well! He was handling everything for the agency before ReachLocal stepped in. Did prospecting, sales, and even tried to do fulfillment (ads) even though I was terrible. 
For POD™, created all the content, did all the sales, managed a team of 3-5, made massive investments in coaching that I had to do the work for, etc.
