Legal Futures Associate Solicitors Own Software, provider of legal software and services for progressive law firms, has welcomed Adam Jobling to its client services team as a scripting consultant.

Demand for SOS Connect’s integrated case and practice management solutions is rising, especially among mid-tier firms, and Mr Jobling will help SOS clients take advantage of the software’s flexibility to be tailored to meet individual departmental requirements.

Mr Jobling joins SOS from Manchester-based law firm Colemans-ctts, where his role involved both software development and project management. Prior to that he spent four years with conveyancing and personal injury specialists Optima Legal as a case management software developer.

“Joining SOS gives me the opportunity to work on the software supplier side of the business for the first time and with software at the leading edge in the industry,” said Mr Jobling. “I am greatly looking forward to a job full of variety, helping many types of law firms up and down the country to gain the most from their investment in SOS Connect.

“I’m sure it will be very satisfying to hand over a system to a client that meets their precise needs now and yet remains adaptable to future changes and new requirements.”

David McNamara, managing director of SOS, said: “More and more firms are realising the power and flexibility offered by our SOS Connect software, hence the expansion of our highly effective implementations team with additional, experienced people like Adam to support our growing client base. We are committed to helping law firms become as efficient and effective as possible in order to meet the new legal landscape with confidence.”

Legal tech: The AI generation

In 1950, Alan Turing asked himself, “Can machines think”? Almost 70 years later, the Turing Test remains unbeaten. But a computer that can imitate human intelligence seems just a matter of time. Today, however, AI is still in its infancy. This is especially the case in the legal world, not particularly known for its urge for technological innovation. And as is the case with new technologies, a healthy dose of scepticism is required to distinguish between hype and opportunity. The most sophisticated AI systems still produce non-intelligent false-positives and cannot understand contextual information.
