Alex Stern is the picture of what many legal technologists imagine the next generation to be. He went from being a computer-fascinated preschooler to a 13-year-old software developer who created a tool to help facilitate charitable donations. After graduating from University of California, Berkeley School of Law and working as a plaintiff-side class action attorney for a few years, Stern immediately saw a need for more technology in law.

Stern attempted to design his software, Attorney IO, with the “little guy” in mind: Attorneys competing against the massive resources of a Big Law firm. “We want to have a digital AI research team. If you have a motion to dismiss or a motion for summary judgment from some massive firm, we want you to be able to upload that to the AI and it’ll come up with counterpunches. It’ll help you figure out how to respond,” he said.
