Data-date Legal Tech - what's the story?

19.04.2022 — 14:00‐16:00

Society as a whole and business in particular is rapidly digitizing, an evolution that is also applicable to the legal profession. Legal tech helps to manage this digital transition and tries to facilitate internal processes and improve efficiency. The solutions are software based and may apply artificial intelligence. Legal tech is not only used in supporting services such as billing and accounting, but also in legal core tasks, for instance legal research and case or contract management.

According to Kluwer there were 55 legal tech companies in 2019 in Belgium and this number was doubled in 2020. Their legal map shows the companies and the domains they work in.
