What is legal technology?
The most important legal technology to
date: written language!
Code of Hammurabi,
Mesopotamia 1754 BCE
(Wikimedia: Rama CC BY-SA 2.0)
But more to the point...
-  technology (especially ICT) that is used
-  by lawyers (for legal work), or
-  to do work conventionally done by lawyers
-  research, development, deployment
-  generally not the same thing as Law &
Technology or ICT law (substantial legal
issues related to (emerging) technologies)
-  (old-fashioned) umbrella term for both: legal
informatics
Some examples of legal
technology
Legal information retrieval
-  access to legal sources (cases, statutes,
doctrine)

increasingly sophisticated
-  NLP-powered interfaces, recommendations,
better UX

(where data available!)
Legal practice technology
