Why learn to automate?
(1 minute read)
Freeing up your time to do more exciting and complex work
Contract automation is enabling lawyers to work more efficiently by reducing the amount of manual legwork required to draft documents and streamlining the entire process. By freeing up valuable time, lawyers can focus on the more complex and exciting aspects of their client work.
Enhanced training earlier in your career
Through having more time available to contribute towards more exciting and high-value work, trainees are able to experience a greater number of novel learning opportunities. This will invariably contribute towards them becoming more well-rounded and better-trained lawyers upon qualification.
Adding value to your team
With an increased capacity to work on complex and high-value work, lawyers are able to feel as though they are adding more value to their team and their clients. Complex issues also require greater collaboration within teams as well which might strengthen the sense of camaraderie and contribute to team morale.
Greater collaboration between teams
Contract automation is not just increasing efficiency and collaboration within teams but also doing so between teams within a firm too. With a more streamlined process for drafting documents, different teams are able to collaborate on a more strategic level and find more innovative solutions for clients.
Less scope for error
Contract automation allows lawyers to easily track the changes being made in their contracts during the negotiation stage so that errors are more easily recognised. Alerts are also available to highlight when contracts are missing vitally important information.
Deepen client relationships
By helping clients to upskill in legal technology and by offering them a self-serve solution to create and draft their own documents, lawyers are able to have a whole new way in which to add value to their clients and interact with them. This undoubtedly helps to entrench client relationships and also has the potential to create new ones.
