Generative AI in the law

Generative AI, (GenAI) a subset of AI technology, is the driver of this change. Its ability to generate text, summarise information, and provide insights has sparked considerable interest across various industries, including law. The reason for the rising popularity of GenAI is clear. This cutting-edge technology reduces time and costs by simplifying legal research and drafting. With less time spent on complex and laborious research tasks, legal professionals can focus on what really matters to their clients. Lawyers can dedicate more time to nurturing client relationships and understanding their needs.

The legal industry is typically conservative in its ways of working. It still follows decades-old processes. However, the winds of change are gathering pace. Some forward-thinking law firms, such as Irwin Mitchell have realised that to remain relevant and effective in an increasingly digital world, there is an urgent need to stay ahead of technological advancements.

Introducing Lexis+ AI

At the centre of this transformation is Lexis+ AI. This groundbreaking technology aims to redefine how legal professionals conduct their work. Lexis+ AI has been designed to deliver accurate, linked citations to the underlying source or authority in seconds.

Lexis+ AI is recognised as one of the most comprehensive legal AI solutions on the market. This feat has been achieved by a team of over 2,000 technologists, data scientists, and subject matter experts, dedicated to its development and testing.

Eleanor Windsor, Partner, Director of Knowledge Management, at Irwin Mitchell, comments, “We selected Lexis+ AI as it is the most advanced legally trained AI solution on the market. It will enable us to maximise the value of the legal intelligence we already access from LexisNexis.”

Technological innovation is fundamental to Irwin Mitchell’s strategy for providing a market-leading client experience. Introducing Lexis+ AI into their existing systems will bring unrivalled speed and efficiency to their legal workflow.
