Lander & Rogers has debuted a program focused on AI and its impact on the legal profession.

Dubbed the AI Lab by Lander & Rogers, the program was established to build on the success of the firm’s AI clinical program for undergraduate law students, which was developed in collaboration with Monash University. The firm said that AI Lab by Lander & Rogers is guided by three strategic pillars, namely, transform, develop and partner.

“Embracing AI isn't just a choice; it's an imperative in maintaining our position as innovation leaders in Australia as we look toward the future. There is an undeniable synergy between law and AI, and like any traditional industry, the legal industry must leverage it. Introducing our AI Lab isn't just about adapting; it's about defining the next legal horizon”, said Michelle Bey, chief innovation officer and AI strategic lead.

Among the program’s aims was the active exploration and implementation of AI use cases in legal practice, progressing past the testing stage to complete integration into operational and client service frameworks. The firm also sought to produce innovative proof-of-concepts and prototypes while tailoring AI technology to suit specific legal environments and client needs.

Lander & Rogers also expressed its intent to facilitate AI literacy and understanding among its stakeholders, such as its people, clients and wider community, to foster informed viewpoints regarding AI's potential and limitations in legal contexts.

The program will work together with the LawTech Hub by Lander & Rogers as well as with industry leaders, academic institutions and AI startups.

“Our investment in this new AI Lab is a testament to the firm's innovative core and commitment to excellence in legal services. We believe this strategic investment will not only lift our technological capabilities but also set new benchmarks for the profession”, Lander & Rogers CEP Genevieve Collins said.

The AI Lab is helmed by the firm's iHub innovation function, members of its technology group, and select partners and lawyers who are actively engaging with AI.
