While there has been significant progress toward technology adoption in legal over the last few decades, there is still work to be done, as a similar percentage also feel the industry is not yet ready for AI technology.
Sixty-two percent of legal professionals say they are not using AI, and 60% of professionals feel the industry is not ready for AI. Respondents cite security and privacy concerns and a lack of knowledge on staff to use AI successfully as the main barriers to implementing AI.
