Frederick nonprofit law firm adopts AI tool to improve efficiency, access

May 10—The Employment Law Center of Maryland has recently adopted an artificial intelligence tool that acts as a legal assistant — a move that an attorney at the center says will help close the gap for access to justice.

The nonprofit law firm has been using the tool — called CoCounsel — for the past few months to complete time-intensive tasks like legal research, drafting documents and contracts and reviewing documents. It's become an integral part of the day-to-day work, the center's managing attorney, Joseph Gibson, said.

Gibson said the firm was amazed by CoCounsel's capabilities.
