Prompting @OpenAI's ChatGPT with a series of simple to complex legal questions focused on contract language.

Some questions are handled exceptionally well; others highlight the shortcomings of applying AI to legal. Featuring interesting examples in this thread... (1/x)
First, gotta love that ChatGPT comes out of the gate with every lawyer's favorite way to start an answer: "It depends..."

Here, I ask the AI a contract interpretation question. It does well to punt on the q due to lack of sufficient info. (2/x) Image
Next, I try to constrain the AI's ability to punt by adding: "No other section of the NDA impairs this definition."

As a result, a more concrete response is returned by the AI. (3/x) Image

About a year ago, I decided to take a DEEP dive into the world of #legaltech.

I’ve since spent 1000+ hours consuming legal tech content – articles, tweets, podcasts, video walkthroughs, you name it.

🧵of 15+ sites and newsletters that I’ve found particularly helpful!
First, a shoutout to the many incredible legal tech commentators & content creators out there.

I’ve benefited tremendously from their insights while building and iterating upon @StandardDraft.

Presenting the legal tech websites and newsletters in no particular order…

🚨New paper, from @MCBRIDEPAULINE and me:

"Argument by numbers: the normative impact of statistical legal tech"

Forthcoming in a Communitas special issue on normativity.

Preprint on SocArXiv:… Image
We argue that the ways that machine learning mediates how law is done -- according to statistical notions of relevance or optimality -- ultimately affect what law *is*.
The issue isn't some mythical #AGI 'robot judge', but the much more subtle (mis)direction of legal practice by statistical means. This often happens upstream, effected by design decisions that might seem remote from the day-to-day use of #legaltech

Opening this thread to give first hand account how @DelhiPolice handles online complaints, First Information Reports (FIRs), police investigations, etc. This thread would discuss about the ODR Request created against Mr. M. Kumar, to which Delhi Police is a party. #DigitalIndia
I have sent all relevant and concerned details of the ODR Request to you with complete ODR Request through DM. We hope @DelhiPolice would cooperate with @ODRIndia Portal to do complete justice. #DigitalIndia #IndiaAt75 #LegalTech
The rationale of @ODRIndia Portal and its functioning has been duly communicated to @DelhiPolice. Let us see whether DP also agrees with us regarding #AccessToJustice and reducing burden upon Police and Judiciary. #DigitalIndia #IndiaAt75 #LegalTech

Game on! We have our first D.C. Circuit opinion from Judge Ketanji Brown Jackson.

Stellar scores for this #appellatetwitter debut.

On one of those dry statutory issues often doled out to . . . brand-new #SCOTUS Justices.

Any exciting matters percolating in other courts, like the California Supreme Court or the District Court of South Carolina, just to name two courts at random? #SCOTUSnominee

Law is a profession of passed down wisdom. But that wisdom is often siloed to a golden few. The internet offers an opportunity to share this knowledge asynchronously & at scale.

So in 2021 I interviewed 50 lawyers on the #HowILawyer podcast.

Here are 20 lessons I learned 🧵 👇
1. Career Paths Only Look Straight When You Look Backwards.

When you read LinkedIn bios top to bottom career trajectories can seem obvious. But the truth is that they are often unplanned, serendipitous, and the product of chance and risk taking.

2. Find Champions, Not Just Mentors.

A mentor helps you find your way. A champion helps you pave the way and get across the finish line.

Having a champion is a key to success. Being a champion is perhaps the greatest value you can add to our profession.

"Pôle Emploi Bonjour !"
Quand tu tombes malgré toi sur des bugs informatiques nationaux... Et que l'algorithme @poleemploi_IDF n'a pas prévu ton cas de figure sur la rupture conventionnelle dans la #FonctionPublique 🤯 ! 1/n
Je suis tombé au téléphone sur un agent "juriste" du "service des fraudes" qui m'indique que la loi sur la transformation de la #FonctionPublique et les décrets afférents sur la rupture conventionnelle ne s'appliquent pas à un organisme PRIVÉ comme @pole_emploi ! 2/n
On va juste remettre les choses dans l'ordre :
- la Loi "s'applique" à tout ceux qui sont concernés dans le texte. C'est valable aussi pour la déclinaison décret !

What is a #DAO and what are the predictions that will impact lawyers (aka opportunities and growth!) - a thread. #legal #lawyers #law #crypto #blockchain #legaltech Complete research briefing at
DAO - decentralized autonomous organization. This is a new type of company type (e.g. LLC), in which there is no leading member of the organization that has a majority rule and no human-based active decision making.
DAOs - operate through a series of smart contracts with extremely limited human interaction. This means the business can run without a traditional business structure.

Breaking story and @legalitinsider @chillmedia has got the exclusive: @clearlakecap sells its shares in @netdocuments to PE behemoth @warburgpincus at a deal rumored to value ND at $1.4B…
I've not hidden my affinity for ND. I've spoken at their conference in Park City and London and think they are the clear market leader in legal Document Management Systems.
When they launched over 20 years ago the ☁️ wasn't a thing, especially for #lawfirms. But as the industry has moved to cloud first the growth📈 was🚀level, growing at ~40% YOY

1/ When I first made the jump from law to #legaltech, I was told that my legal experience didn't matter. "You have no sales experience, so you'll need to start from the bottom," they said. That pissed me off.
2/ I was a 33 year old graduate of Northwestern Law, with a federal clerkship and Biglaw experience under my belt. And what did this tiny startup want me to do? Make cold calls!? Fine, I thought. I'm gonna become the best damn cold caller in legal tech.
3/ So I put my head down and called like a madman. Made sure I was always number one on the leaderboard. I became a true student of the game. Read every sales book I could. Talked to as many of our existing customers as possible, too. I absolutely crushed it that year.

Recap of the first-ever @UAlbertaLaw access to justice technology competition!

Please RT and share with your #LegalTech friends!

First, an introduction to the competitors:
Group 1 created a @docassemble interview that streamlined the criminal client intake process at @slsedmonton by, in some cases, weeks(!). A paper-based process happening at two physically disparate offices, between 3 different people (client, caseworker, and dayleader)... 2/
is now all handled inside a single @docassemble interview that generates an intake form identical to the ones currently used. The need was made obvious by covid, but the resulting tool is better than the pre-covid system. And the students involved and @slsedmonton are 3/

Interesting development for #lawyers everywhere. The National Conference of Bar Examiners is giving states the option to offer a #FallBarExam in lieu of the regular July Bar Exam. NCBE says they will make the decision on whether to cancel the July Bar Exam no later than 5/52020.
Potential effects of postponing the exam: (1) fewer newly-registered attorneys this Fall; (2) law firms employing recent grads as law clerks, paralegals, etc. for longer periods; and (3) more recent graduates opting for legal careers not requiring bar admission (e.g., policy).
We might even see a spike in #LegalTech startups as #techy recent grads from law schools looking for jobs not requiring the bar exam during this period.

Lawyer and #legaltech friends in #Alberta. There isn't a lot of good news right now, with #coronavirus or anything else. But there may be an opportunity to do something, and I'd like your help.

Courts are busy places. Social distancing is often not a possibility.
Staying away from court will be a part of good social distancing practice. But staying away from court when you have a date on which you are obliged to appear can exacerbate your existing problems, especially for self-represented litigants.

If a self-represented litigant has a court date that they would prefer to adjourn because they are ill, or because they have young children, or live or work with elderly people, or whyever, the Court would likely be sympathetic.

Judges don't want to get sick, either.

I got interested in #legaltech after reading "Tomorrow's Lawyers" by @richardsusskind. In it, Susskind predicts what will happen to the legal industry over the next 20 years, but I wanted to know what people were working on *now*. Everyone I met said “Go to @wearelegalgeek”...
So I went to @wearelegalgeek! I attended all 3 days, and these are some thoughts on Day 1 from an outsider's perspective :). Also, I'm wrong frequently, so please feel free to call me out when you think I said something stupid :) (go easy on the company list I was movin fast)
Day 1 seemed to run like a normal conference (the few I've been to), with speakers, demos and corporate booths happening everywhere. Instead of listening to the awesome lineup of speakers ... I decided to talk to every company I possibly could lol:

@NorthwesternLaw presents "EY Law Point of View: The Legal Market of the Future" with Dr. Cornelius Grossmann, @EY_Law's Global Law Leader.
Dr. Grossmann says "EY is not a law firm" but it is seeking to provide legal- related services.
"If you do work in the third tier, you're in trouble. Why? Because there's a new fourth tier" in which ALSPs (aka #lawcompanies) are starting to provide more affordable services.
Dr. Grossmann says the #biglaw firms in Tier 1 are fighting each other at the top of the market.
"The first tier is fantastic for education. It's not necessarily a fantastic life that you have there."
You can make as much if not more money in the 4th tier, he adds.

They should all be on Twitter and LinkedIn and connecting to the many who are active in that space. They can then exchange questions and ideas, plus read the many articles, etc., they will see referenced. That process will help them get educated and make many contacts. 1/n
They also should read books by @richardsusskind @MEKowalski @jordan_law21 (many others, but this will get them started). If they can, they should attend #legaltech conferences, esp the ABA Techshow. The students I had who had the most success ... 2/n
were the ones who connected into the network through social media and then worked with the network to find jobs. 3/n
