There are exciting developments happening in LawTech, particularly in Artificial Intelligence and Machine Learning. In this article I’d like to describe how you can use chatbots and why they will help you and your clients.
Since 2007 when the first iPhone was launched, we all now carried mobile devices. You have this magic piece of glass that can transform experiences and bring people far away closer to you. It’s breath taking how this has evolved in such a short space in time of our history.
As designers we like to use conventions and metaphors as visual cues to show how something works – but ultimately for technology to be successful it needs to be a natural extension of what we as people already do. Chatbot are just that and have been around for a while, you find them in messaging apps on smartphones or on company websites.
The following research by Flurry display the growth of messaging apps.

We know technology has dehumanised commercial relationships. We now use technology to create technology which accelerates the development of new products. Combine this with what we are learning about people through analytics and behavioural studies, the results have given us chatbots with machine learning. They give us the opportunity to make online transactions seem human. We prefer to call chatbots “Digital Employees” and once they are trained, like a real person, can;
Digital Employees can have conversations with your potential clients and learn from their questions to deliver the correct answers – this has a dramatic impact on conversions and means we are getting closers to offering true customer experience, all from your mobile.
Lawyers need to complete many routine unbilled tasks from administrative to financial but still need consultation time and to create legal documents. Legal chatbots help you to focus on client facing work and when they are trained can deliver what your clients need 24 hours a day. Generally speaking they can complete mundane tasks and deliver automated services that removes layers of costs to your law firm.
Remember chatbots are after all a representative your law firm so when having conversations with your clients they reveal your law firms values and can talk with your brand voice.
Chatbots can have multiple conversations with multiple prospects at the same time so you don’t need to bring in teams of people to scale up.
Client facing chatbot applications are endless;
They are trained partly by you, conversations are logged which means you can match correct answers to the questions your potential clients are asking, that’s if your chatbot doesn’t already know the right answer.
