The global legal system is changing as the world moves towards the ‘information society’. Most lawyers, judges, legal administrators and their clients are regular users of IT and increasingly expect to rely upon modern systems in their daily practice. Even the courtroom, which is often thought of as the last bastion of antiquated working practices, is opening its doors to new technology. Leading edge computing will soon provide massive dispute-resolving capability for a fraction of today’s price. This growing scale, added to greater connectivity between users around the globe, offers tremendous opportunities to build intelligent systems, i.e. platforms that can adapt to their users’ requirements and can learn from experience.
