Overview

The area of Information Technology and Lawyers is a fascinating one. Both from a practical and an academic perspective the opportunities of applying Information Technology to law are tremendous. At the same time, however, lawyers are amongst the most conservative professionals, and traditional late adapters of technology. Nowadays the gap between Information Technology and Lawyers is closing more and more, in particular due to the Internet and the richness of legal sources that can be found online. This book provides material to further bridge the gap by showing people with a legal background what is possible with Information Technology now and in the near future, as well as by showing people with an IT background what opportunities exist in the domain of law.

Any lawyer should read this book about the current practice of IT in the legal domain, and what is to be expected in the near future.

The book is meant for both practitioners and academics, and can serve in any (post)graduate courses on computer science, law, business, etc.

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
From the reviews:

"This compendium is a series of seven papers (chapters) discussing how information technology (IT), and more specifically artificial intelligence (AI), might be promising and useful in the legal profession, and in the legal reasoning and litigation fields. … The material is technically correct and current, and this volume will be useful for any law-involved or interested party. It would make an excellent addition to any law library. The book could also be a useful or supportive text for any course dealing with these topics." (R. Waldo Roth, Computing Reviews, December, 2006)
