How associates can use tech to get ahead in their careers

Lawyers are taught rules and procedures while studying the law, which is essential to achieving optimal legal outcomes, but academic study does little to prepare them for how these outcomes can be meaningfully affected by the use of legal technology.

Edward Irwin spoke to CS Disco, as part of a blog series on how technology is reshaping the legal world, offering an associate’s perspective.

Edward talked about the difference technology made during one of his first e-disclosure projects, how law firms can embrace the chance to improve processes, why technology presents a real opportunity for junior lawyers to set themselves apart and why he does not see artificial intelligence replacing him or what he does.
