A recent report has recommended that law firms navigate technological disruption by giving employees a sense of purpose in their work.

According to the recent Industry Insights report by global HR think tank Reventure, the adoption of artificial intelligence (AI) is going to lead to significant restructuring in professional services organisations, including law firms.

Reventure lead researcher Dr Lindsay McMillan said AI is likely to replace repetitive, entry-level work often performed by paralegals and junior lawyers.

“The current pyramid structure of organisations is likely to face disruption because AI will begin taking over the repetitive, mundane tasks from everyone’s job,” he said.
