The adoption and implementation of legal technology within law firms is becoming increasingly common. As technology continues to advance and change the way we work, law firms are recognizing the benefits and are becoming more open to using legal tech to streamline their processes and increase efficiency. However, while firms may be receptive to legal tech, the adoption and training of the technology can be a problem.
Here’s a summary of what we’ll look at in this post:
- Firms are becoming more receptive to legal tech
- Newer lawyers within the firm are receptive to legal tech but adoption and training can be a problem
- Adoption and training are crucial for success
- Continual training and technology champions are necessary to ensure the system is being used on a regular basis
One of the main issues is that newer lawyers within the firm may be receptive to legal tech, but may struggle with adoption and training. They may be familiar with the traditional way of working and may find it difficult to change their habits. Additionally, when a deal or case becomes stressful, it can be easy for them to fall back on the familiar and rely on paper documents and traditional processes.

Firms should focus on continual training and the appointment of technology champions to ensure the technology is being used to its full potential.
