In March last year, the Changing Legal think tank was founded by Richard Tromans, Artificial Lawyer, together with thought leaders and experts from across the legal industry to help develop ideas that would drive systemic change in the legal world, including VQ founder Helena Hallgarn. As part of the discussions in the think tank, the members soon realised the need for greater awareness of the many standardisation projects taking place around the world. It also became clear that this was something that was going to need its own dedicated focus. Thus, a separate project called Legal Standards Monitor was initiated by Helena Hallgarn, VQ, and Mark Medice, LawVision.
Now, we are very happy to announce the launch of Legal Standards Monitor, which aims to promote the adoption of standards across the legal industry.
In a recent Artificial Lawyer article, Helena Hallgarn explains the project further and how we initially hope to provide greater transparency to standards so that organisations are more willing to learn about them and find opportunities to try them out.
In time, we hope to build a community of standard providers and users to reduce friction and accelerate standards adoption.
If successful, we will create more standard processes, pricing models, metrics, and greater service automation. That way, we can help accelerate a more modern legal sector with standardized contracts, automated tasks, and new delivery models for legal services.
