Using GPT-3 to help lawyers write summaries and suggest edits
Lexion’s software helps lawyers make sense of contracts. It rolled out new features today for its Microsoft Word plug-in, including the ability to suggest potential edits and write entire text summaries thanks to GPT-3.
For example, a user can ask Lexion to propose language related to a specific clause in a contract, and it will instantly produce a draft.
The idea is not to completely rely on AI, but for it to improve overall efficiency, said Lexion CEO Gaurav Oberoi. “It’s assistive,” he said. “Think of it as a junior attorney doing something.”
GPT-3 is also being used by Lexion to help generate suggested edits to a contract, or to quickly summarize clause language.
