Article Summary

Generative artificial intelligence that produces text and images is gaining attention in the legal industry, but it’s not the only AI tool available to attorneys. Companies are offering AI-enabled analytics to give lawyers a competitive edge in litigation. Tools like Relativity’s sentiment analysis and Lexis+ provide valuable insights by sorting through large datasets, while Pre/Dicta predicts motion outcomes by analyzing judges’ personal data and case histories.

These AI tools help lawyers save time and make informed decisions about pursuing litigation or settlements. Benjamin Alarie, CEO of Blue J, highlights how predictive analytics support litigation strategies, though challenges remain in using these tools effectively. For example, Relativity’s sentiment analysis wasn’t designed for litigation strategy, and forum shopping with Pre/Dicta’s predictions could backfire. The need for substantial data to ensure prediction accuracy is crucial, as emphasized by Dan Rabinowitz of Pre/Dicta and Alarie, with different approaches to leveraging data for legal predictions.
