AI in Legal - Scary Good?

I was captivated by the interview with Adrian Jaggard discussing the integration of AI in the legal sphere. The possibilities and future implications are truly mind-boggling and thought-provoking! And frankly, a little spooky!

Fan of the pod!

Discoved Rob while scrolling on LinkedIn. An attorney friend of mine did an interview and posted it. Great listen! Rob brings a ton of energy to the conversation. Most importantly he is a good host. Keeps the guest sharing good stories and advice.
