In-house counsel likely to be the first adopters of legal artificial intelligence, says Jordan Furlong

Jordan Furlong argues that corporate in-house legal departments will be the first ones in the legal world to really adopt artificial intelligence because in-house lawyers are not beholden to the billable hour:

Corporate law departments, unlike law firms, are financially structured to seek the most effective and productive outcomes with the least use of effort and resources. Cognitive reasoning technologies are designed to achieve exactly this kind of outcome, so the alignment of interests between AI and in-house is clear and substantial.

Read the whole interview and indeed, read anything Jordan Furlong has to say about the legal world.

By the way, I just learned about artificial lawyer, and eager to dive in and read more about what they have to say.
