Law Geex Article: The world’s first law firm “without lawyers”

The Australian Broadcasting Corp. reported  that the people of Darwin can just about take the law into their own hands, with a new legal firm going “lawyer-free”.Cartland Law announced its launch of  Ailira (Artificially Intelligent Legal Information Resource Assistant)   located in Coolalinga Shopping Centre, south of Darwin.

A lawyer has launched an artificial intelligence-backed (AI) chatbot that powers what he calls the ‘Law Firm Without Lawyers’, initially aimed at consumer and tax law but shortly to be extended to domestic violence. The Australian creator, Adrian Cartland, a tax specialist who runs Cartland Law, in Adelaide, South Australia, told Legal Futuresthat he hopes to bring it to the UK.

South Australian taxation lawyer Adrian Cartland invented Ailira to fulfil everything from legal advice, to research, and now important tasks with clients. It’s been set up in the Northern Territory town of Coolalinga, and its website’s official description states: “Ailira’s advice function works like a chatbot. Ailira asks a number of questions via text (or speech) like an interview. That information is collated and can be analysed to provide advice, and also automatically generate documents.”

Rage Against the Machines: Artificial Intelligence and the Future of Legal Practice

Two recent stories shine a spotlight on the digital future of legal practice. An Australian practitioner designed and launched a law firm staffed solely by an artificial intelligence (AI) providing tax and estates law services. In the race to market AI legal services, the Artificially Intelligent Legal Information Research Assistant (Ailira) deservedly won headlines and, potentially, mindshare.

Nick Deeks writes in the Australian Financial Review. “Was this the legal sector’s “Kodak moment”? The event that signalled the beginning of the end: “The people of Darwin can just about take the law into their own hands, with a new legal firm going lawyer-free,” ABC News reported recently. “With a few clicks of a button, a client can enter their details and will then be asked a few simple questions by Ailira, before the robot generates a fully certified will, using the Ailira system.””

Forget robot lawyers – AI is your R2D2

Forget robot lawyers – AI is your R2D2

Adrian Cartland wants us to stop talking about robot lawyers. As principal lawyer of Cartland Law and creator of Ailira and Law Firm Without Lawyers, it’s a surprising sentiment. Ailira, which stands for Artificially Intelligent Legal Information Research Assistant, famously helped Adrian’s speech pathologist girlfriend score 73% in the Adelaide University tax law exam – with better grades than Adrian. His work combines the best of AI and legal practice.

“This research has shown AI can be used to identify cases and extract patterns which correlate with certain outcomes. This information can subsequently be used to develop indicators for successful claims which may eventually prioritise the decision-making, suggesting that rather than replacing judges, AI could assist,”

UK Supreme Court Judge, Lord Sales, Says…’We need to build a structure of legal obligations on those who design and build algorithms,’

Presenting the British and Irish Legal Information Institute’s Sir Henry Brooke Lecture, Lord Sales said the growing role of algorithms and artificial intelligence poses significant legal problems, in particular around the fundamental concept of agency. Existing prejudices could be embedded in hidden rules that are impossible to challenge, he said. ’AI may get to the stage where it will understand the rules of equity and how to recognise hard cases, but we are not there yet.’
