Linetime 200x200Leading independent Scottish law firm Gillespie Macandrew has decided to invest in the Liberate case management system from Linetime. The product will initially be used within the Housebuilder department to help manage residential plot sales. The main attraction lay in the specialist portfolio case structure but the firm was also impressed by the quality of the Outlook integration and the user friendly rapid development tools.

Chris West, Gillespie Macandrew LLP chief executive officer states, “In a highly competitive and often fast-moving market we were looking for a system which would help us continue to deliver and improve our high quality legal service including the ability to meet our key clients’ information needs particularly as our work in this area grows.”

Phil Snee, development director at Linetime, commented. “The plot sales element of the Liberate system is proving very popular with a number of high calibre law firms and we are delighted to welcome Gillespie Macandrew into the fold. Linetime prides itself on the continuous development of both products and customer relationships and this endorsement serves to reinforce that policy.”

‘Gillespie Macandrew is committed to providing expert legal, commercial, property and tax advice to individuals, businesses, charities and landowners.’

Algorithms and the law

Jeremy Barnett

Our aim is to start a discussion in the legal profession on the legal impact of algorithms on firms, software developers, insurers, and lawyers. In a longer paper, we consider whether algorithms should have a legal personality, an issue which will likely provoke an intense debate between those who believe in regulation and those who believe that ‘code is law’. In law, companies have the rights and obligations of a person. Algorithms are rapidly emerging as artificial persons: a legal entity that is not a human being but for certain purposes is legally considered to be a natural person. Intelligent algorithms will increasingly require formal training, testing, verification, certification, regulation, insurance, and status in law.
