Oyez-Forms-Logo-CMYKOyezForms has recently completed integration between their forms software and SharePoint document repositories.

SharePoint is used by organisations to create websites, where information can be stored, organised and shared securely online.

The new OyezForms / SharePoint integration means that forms, as used by legal professionals, can now be retrieved and edited from standard SharePoint Web pages in the same manner as Word documents.

Users are prompted to check out forms if required, but also have the option of read-only review. All aspects of version publishing are supported.

Users can now upload newly created forms into SharePoint and tag them as appropriate to provide context. Oyez are willing to assist any required customisation of this aspect of the integration.

Oyez has developed an interface for opening and saving forms to/from SharePoint’s DMS features. Standard web pages generated by SharePoint provide the user search/browse/open experience.

Newly-created OyezForms and FILE>SAVE-AS actions trigger a choice of saving into SharePoint or the local filesystem.

Commenting on the integration, Stephen Martin, technical director of OyezForms said, “The key to this successful integration was adhering to the normal SharePoint experience that users are familiar with. We are delighted to offer this new functionality to Oyez form customers and our case / document management partners.”

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.
