A new legal aid tool developed with the help of Microsoft officially has a brain. According to an entry posted to the company’s blog last Thursday, work on the artificial intelligence powering the aptly named Legal Navigator has been completed.

The tool, which is in the process of being rolled out, was developed in partnership with the Legal Services Corporation, Pro Bono Net, Pew Charitable Trusts and Avanade to help plug a gap between people with limited resources and the know-how needed to navigate basic legal proceedings. Legal Navigator can’t offer advice—that’s still the exclusive domain of human attorneys—but it will be able to walk a user step-by-step through the red tape of executing, say, a divorce.
