More on CMS Events and Decisions

John Matthias wrote that would like to share his full chapter that was discussed in the June 30, 2016 CTB post, Court Case Management Events and Decision Mapping.  John’s full chapter in the book: “Decisions: Where Process Meet Capabilities in Court PCM Requirements” can be viewed and downloaded by clicking here.

“The Bots Are Coming to Legal Services”

Margaret Hagan blogs on legal service chat bots this week.  She begins:

“Last week, it was great to see a short article making the rounds about a new chat-bot legal service coded and launched by a Stanford undergrad student, Joshua Browder. It’s DoNotPay, a bot that asks the user questions and figures out if they can get out of parking tickets or compensated for another ‘service gone wrong’.

The app is a conversational interface put on top of an expert system. The hype mainly seems to be around the term “robot lawyer” (note: if you want to get mainstream coverage about the legal services innovation, use the words “robot lawyer,” include the talking point that lawyers are going to be replaced with tech/robots, and the blogs/press will go crazy! This is one narrative they seem to feed on)."
