Automation Academy launched through Create+65, the firm's LegalTech innovation lab
Clifford Chance has commenced the pilot phase of its cutting edge robotics training programme, Automation Academy through Create+65; the firm's LegalTech innovation lab. The programme will be run in conjunction with Josef, a 'next generation' legal automation platform that allows lawyers to create bots. Josef's team of legal designers and technologists will support the initiative.
The Automation Academy is intended to provide trainees and lawyers a foundational understanding of how to automate legal contracts and other tasks using a no-code platform. The aim is to ensure all trainees have a commercial understanding of how legal documents can be automated by breaking down the fear that many legal graduates and lawyers, who often identify with being non-technical/non-mathematical, have around technology.
Singapore Managing Partner Kai-Niklas Schneider offers, "This training will equip our lawyers with the skills to identify automation opportunities, and develop, test and build 'bots' to solve real world challenges within the firm."
