    Mental Health

    “Little is known about the current behavioral health climate in the legal profession. Despite a widespread belief that attorneys experience substance use disorders and other mental health concerns at a high rate, few studies have been undertaken to validate these beliefs empirically or statistically. Although previous research had indicated that those in the legal profession struggle with problematic alcohol use, depression, and anxiety more so than the general population, the issues have largely gone unexamined for decades (Benjamin et al., 1990; Eaton et al., 1990; Beck et al., 1995).

    The most recent and also the most widely cited research on these issues comes from a 1990 study involving approximately 1200 attorneys in Washington State (Benjamin et al., 1990). Researchers found 18% of attorneys were problem drinkers, which they stated was almost twice the 10% estimated prevalence of alcohol abuse and dependence among American adults at that time. They further found that 19% of the Washington lawyers suffered from statistically significant elevated levels of depression, which they contrasted with the then-current depression estimates of 3% to 9% of individuals in Western industrialized countries.”

    • Cloud offers better security, 27.5%
    • Improving features & functionality, 25.4%
    • Centralized data improves collaboration, 23.9%

    Artificial Intelligence in the
    Legal Landscape

    Artificial intelligence is already changing the way attorneys find clients, automate
    processes, and expand their businesses in dramatic ways.

    93%

    of surveyed attorneys
    believe it could reduce costs
    and increase efficiency

    Artificial Intelligence can be effectively used for: contract review/due diligence; predicting a court’s likely decision on a given case with 90% accuracy; and E-discovery. IP Lawyers are using AI to monitor digital platforms, value IP portfolios, and budgeting/analyzing trademark search results. AI can also be used to track billable hours, analyze time spent on tasks. and compile legal analytics.

    Although there is high interest (93% of surveyed attorneys believe it could reduce costs/increase efficiency), there is great reluctance to implement AI technology because attorneys are unwilling to switch reliance from “skepticism” & “precedent” to “algorithms”, “data”, and “analytics.” They tend to favor status quo.

    Legal AI overall value is estimated at $16 billion, compared with overall U.S. legal services market of $437 billion - and, lawyers want to practice law, not become newest case law by journeying out into unknown legal territory.

    E-Discovery

    The growing “internet of things” has led to an increase in need for identifying potential sources
    of information, such as drones, DNA sensors, appliances, etc. This information overload caused
    more user-friendly e-discovery systems to be developed, focusing on increased systemization,
    efficiency, cost reduction, and the ability to perform discovery in-house.
