21 February 2012


Legal technology innovator Peppermint Technology today announces it will support Apple iPad/iPad2 and a range of smartphones including: Windows Phone, Apple iPhone 3GS+, Google Android and RIM Blackberry in its Q2 2012 release of its Legal Service Platform.

This move ensures that the Platform delivers a consistently rich user experience via today’s popular mobile devices. It gives users choice and flexibility as to how and where they work while ensuring a consistent service experience across all channels. Effective mobility is an increasingly important factor for lawyers who need to remain productive and informed whilst out of the office – a fact backed up by Gartner who report that by the end of 2013, approximately 33% of business intelligence will be consumed from a mobile device.

Coupled with the growing trend in ‘Bring Your Own Device' (BYOD), where employees are permitted to use their device of choice at work, the Peppermint Platform is leading the market in supporting the legal service providers of the future.

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.
