What legal professionals using AI can learn from the media industry

With artificial intelligence (AI) already a major factor in legal technology in 2023, law firms must assess the technology’s role in their business. News and media organizations have editorial policies and standards that are intended to define and guide the kind of content offered to their target audience, and in his recent article entitled “What the AI Industry Can Learn from the Media Industry” for Above the Law, Ken Crutchfield, Vice President and General Manager of Legal Markets at Wolters Kluwer Legal & Regulatory U.S., explores the lessons legal professionals can learn from the industry.

Organizations that will create content using AI will want to consider how AI is trained, how AI is instructed, how AI formats output, and how AI generated content is reviewed before publishing.

Just as large media companies stake their brands on the finished work product, Crutchfield explains how law firms also do, highlighting that while an editor reviews a news story, a law firm partner reviews an associate’s memo, whether AI generated or human generated. As legal professionals enter new territory here, it’s important to take the necessary steps and use the proper tools and legal technology to be prepared for what may come, while learning from others that have already traveled a similar journey.
