Artificial Intelligence Concept (Phoro: ProStockStudio/Shutterstock.com)

The biggest challenge facing developers of artificial intelligence-powered legal drafting software may not be the technical but the personal. While the accuracy rate of AI drafting tools that can help lawyers churn out documents such as pleadings, briefs or discovery requests and responses is steadily improving, getting those finished products to align with the varying standards of an array of law firms and attorneys may still be an ongoing process.

James Lee, CEO and co-founder of LegalMation, indicated that accuracy can be something of a roaming target, not just because of limitations in still-developing AI technology, but individual preferences or stylistic flourishes of attorneys. He believes the problem with AI in legal is that there are often clusters of possible right answers, rather than one clear choice.
