The new tools are part of its cloud based Concourse platform launched last year for corporate and government legal departments. These new drafting tools are designed to assist transactional lawyers by permitting them to scan documents for errors, inconsistencies, "missing information" and help identify problems like cross-reference discrepancies. For litigators, TR's new Drafting Assistant works with your existing word processing software to help you better prepare court documents. For instance, one feature called "Authority Compiler" allows users to download and compile a brief, with the authorities automatically pulled from WestlawNext and appended to the documents. It will also automatically format the document so you can share it with clients, co-counsel, opposing counsel and even the judge.
It sound like the lawyer-bots have taken one more step towards world domination.
