How the traditional model for legal services will change with AI?
It is foreseeable that in order for them to get a sufficient level of training, fewer trainees will be hired and they, in turn, will have more contact time with senior lawyers, therefore engaging with more influential and intellectually challenging work from the outset of their contracts. This is likely to change the dynamic of traditional firms from a pyramid shape to a diamond with the majority of the middle tier likely to consist of both legal and non-legal specialist employees. From all the research we have conducted it has become evident that the junior lawyers of the near future will need to have supreme business aligned emotional intelligence as well as a sound base of legal training in order to be successful.
As a final note, it is important now that firms acknowledge that Artificial Intelligence is becoming far more advanced rapidly and ultimately this will result in firms changing the way we do business, how we interact with our client base and most importantly the way we think throughout the sector. The traditional model for legal services is dying, and clients now expect more value of their firms. Aligning our own legal services with the finest legal technology remains at the centre of our firm’s innovation agenda here at Screwem, Goode & Hart with an overarching goal of providing cheaper, faster and superior service to our clients.
