LexisNexis UK, a leading provider of content and technology solutions, has announced the launch of LexisPSL Crime, the latest module of the practice productivity product LexisPSL.

Comprised of practical know-how, forms, current awareness, cases and legislation in one user-friendly interface, LexisPSL Crime was specifically built for, and in consultation with, UK criminal lawyers.

The importance of having quick and easy access to trusted information in criminal law practice is paramount. Cuts and alterations in legal aid resources have made profitability a critical concern for many criminal law practitioners.

At the same time, pressure is growing from the courts due to new criminal procedure rules and paperless court initiatives, which require lawyers to act more quickly and allow for fewer errors. Market conditions have created a need for a comprehensive product that saves a significant amount of time and money for criminal lawyers.

Nick West, director of legal markets, said: “Criminal lawyers are experiencing difficult market conditions. LexisPSL Crime provides support for them in all areas affecting their clients, in an instant and transportable way. There’s nothing in the market that competes with it.”

The product was developed with some of the UK’s leading law firms and the criminal Bar, including Doughty Street Chambers and 18 Red Lion Court.

Woebots and robots

Nadia chatbot

The chances are that you may not be entirely sure what a bot or a chatbot is. So, the news that, “starting today, DoNotPay is opening up so that anyone can create legal bots for free (with no technical knowledge)” may be a bit opaque. But bots have their devotees. The picture is of Nadia, an Australian bot being developed to give information on disability benefits with the voice of Cate Blanchett. The editor of Chatbots Magazine (OK, no neutral source) is pretty clear about their future. He writes articles with titles like ‘How bots will completely kill websites and mobile apps’. Joshua Browder, the creator of the DoNotPay parking ticket challenger, is behind what he hopes will be this major expansion of legal bots.
