The technology could be a game-changer for law firms but there is a risk that AI produces discriminatory outcomes, finds Rose Place.

In the legal sector, the use of artificial intelligence (AI) is increasing. Some law firms have adopted AI tools that process documents and review contracts, while others are going as far as generating legal recommendations and predictions.

Meanwhile, huge strides are being made in the wider industry to encourage equality and diversity initiatives: the theme of this year’s World Intellectual Property Day, for instance, was Women and IP: Accelerating Innovation and Creativity.

However, by using these tools might law firms and IP services companies be unwittingly holding back efforts to improve diversity?
