6 Ways Legal Leaders can Prepare for Generative AI [Infographic]

The use of artificial intelligence (AI) in the legal industry has made significant progress in the last decade, but generative AI represents a radical shift that blurs the line between automation and creativity.

Tech giants and startups alike are investing heavily in AI to build foundational models and develop targeted applications. In 2023, Thomson Reuters announced it would invest over $100 million annually in AI capabilities. The content-driven company has also developed a contract drafting solution powered by its legal products with Microsoft Copilot for Word. And in August 2023, Thomson Reuters completed its acquisition of Casetext.
