Meet LISA, the First Impartial Robot Lawyer
Free AI legal tech tool launches to protect entrepreneurs and students
Legal services are notoriously complicated, not to mention costly for those who need to access them. However, Chrissie Lightfoot, a leading futurist, entrepreneur and lawyer, has come up with an innovative solution.
Instead of forking out for a human advisor, clients can now use Robot Lawyer LISA, an impartial Legal Intelligence Support Assistant, to draw up Non-Disclosure Agreements. The artificially intelligent platform can create legally binding documents in under seven minutes at absolutely no cost to the user. Allowing individuals and businesses to use LISA to protect themselves without any prior legal knowledge. LISA is also the first law robot to provide unbiased and objective assistance to both parties, allowing users to avoid having to engage traditional human lawyers on either side. The service is now providing efficient, on demand legal knowledge to students, businesses and entrepreneurs worldwide.
LISA is collaborating with the University of Westminster and Westminster Law School to further its groundbreaking initiatives. Westminster Law School, one of the leading schools in the UK in the field of technology and the law is involved with initiatives such as REVRLaw which enables students to explore virtual reality crime scenes. Senior Lecturer in Law Dr Paresh Kathrani is also developing a virtual reality game with the Faculty of Science and Technology to enable interactive and experiential legal education. According to Dr Kathrani, working with LISA will help to prepare students for the jobs and ventures of tomorrow. He said, “Collaborating with Robot Lawyer LISA is a perfect fit for the university, our students and the next generation of workers in society.”
As well as academic institutions, LISA has been used by SMEs, incubators, accelerators and professional services firms. The automated lawyer already has a global audience, and has served clients in Europe, North America, South America and Australia. Lightfoot has stated that LISA’s goal is to make standard legal services available and affordable, as well as remaining completely impartial, which is often difficult for human lawyers. Before LISA, students and entrepreneurs had to rely on somewhat sketchy NDA templates from the Internet. “In the UK, 54 per cent of all small businesses muddle through unrepresented,” said Lightfoot. In the U.S. and Canada, the situation is much worse, with 80 to 90 per cent of business people making do without proper legal support.
It’s not difficult to see why so many people are already turning away from human lawyers and opting for automated, AI services instead. The most common complaints with traditional law include the sheer cost and time expenditure when seeking help. LISA, on the other hand, is much cheaper, quicker and accessible. The robotic lawyer also evades partiality, which is difficult for even practised legal professionals to totally avoid. It’s clear that automated law will disrupt existing, legacy procedures. In the future, Robot Lawyer LISA plans to serve regular consumers as well as organisations, staying true to their goal of providing quality impartial support and AI solutions for everyone.
