Legal & Regulatory division continues to redefine the landscape for legal professionals

 

Alphen aan den Rijn – December 7, 2023 – Wolters Kluwer Legal & Regulatory (LR) today announced an innovative feature for legal professionals: Generative Pre-training Transformer (GPT)-generated summaries of court rulings. GPT summarization harnesses generative AI (GenAI) to simplify legal research, eliminating the need to read through multiple court cases, saving valuable time. This innovation in beta will initially serve legal professionals using the Wolters Kluwer Online research platform in Germany before being rolled out to other products.

 

Martin O’Malley, CEO of Wolters Kluwer LR, said: “We recognize our customers’ need for efficiency and accuracy in legal research. With the integration of GPT-generated summaries into our legal research products, we’re transforming the way in which legal professionals assess and interpret case law. This innovative feature is a testament to our commitment to empowering our customers with our deep domain knowledge, the highest editorial quality and the latest in GenAI technology, ensuring they remain at the forefront of the legal field.”

 

Wolters Kluwer’s GPT summarization feature significantly reduces the time spent on legal research by:

  • Providing more than tens of thousands of GPT-generated summaries for quick understanding of court decisions.
  • Enabling easy categorization of relevance with comprehensive summaries that encompass the facts and history of the case.
  • Reducing the volume of documents requiring in-depth review through efficient content assessment.
