Frederick nonprofit law firm adopts AI tool to improve efficiency, access

·1 min read

May 10—The Employment Law Center of Maryland has recently adopted an artificial intelligence tool that acts as a legal assistant — a move that an attorney at the center says will help close the gap for access to justice.

The nonprofit law firm has been using the tool — called CoCounsel — for the past few months to complete time-intensive tasks like legal research, drafting documents and contracts and reviewing documents. It's become an integral part of the day-to-day work, the center's managing attorney, Joseph Gibson, said.

Gibson said the firm was amazed by CoCounsel's capabilities.
