Legal tech /ˈliːgəl//tɛk/ (n.)

1. (Vogue usage) Information technology that assists in the provision of or, more likely, delivery of, legal services. In these pages used interchangeably with “reg tech”. Both quite disappointing.

2. (Contrarian usage) Not chat-bots, AI, metadata extraction, fuzzy logic or reg tech or blockchain. Instead, the code that lawyers are trained in how to programme from their first day at law school: words.
