Why 1 Head is Better than 2

The conventional wisdom is that 2 heads are better than 1: in the world of technology, that can have perverse outcomes, particularly when it comes to the automation of legal documents. The notion of putting a lawyer together with a software developer or coder and expecting them to succeed in document automation is resoundingly wrong.

Three key takeaways:

1. What “no-code” really means, and how to automate complex logic without writing any formulas.
2. Why Knowledge Management lawyers should implement automation themselves, rather than delegating to separate coders.
3. Lawyers are actually highly skilled in working with logical rules, even if they don’t realise it yet.
