A I For Lawyers demonstrates how even a modest investment of time and money into the innovative technologies of AI and machine learning can drive significant results in any firm.

Authors Noah Waisberg and Dr. Alexander Hudek of Kira Systems, the world's leading legal artificial intelligence platform, describe a framework for adopting artificial intelligence in your firm in accessible and practical detail.

Back cover copy


"This book brings AI down to earth with an admirable lightness of touch."
--Richard Susskind, author of Tomorrow's Lawyers

"I learned a great deal from this engaging book. It was a quick, page-turning read. I highly recommend it."
--Brad Karp, Chairman, Paul Weiss

"Noah and Alexander have written a classic. This is everything you ever wanted to know about technology and the law but never dared ask. Through their lucid explanations of how the technology works, how it can be applied, and how it's fast-improving, your eyes will be opened to a future of legal practice that is more enjoyable, profitable, and just. As the pace of technological change accelerates exponentially, this book provides an accessible way to jump in and become part of the revolution."
--David Morley, Global Managing Partner, Global Senior Partner (2003-2016), Allen &Overy; Consultant & Portfolio Chair (2017-)

"This important new book provides a clear and concise guide to how artificial intelligence and related technologies are reshaping the market for legal services. Utilizing their unparalleled experience as the founders of the most important legal AI company and their extensive contacts in the industry, Waisberg and Hudek offer a thoughtful examination of the costs--and even more importantly, the benefits--of the application of technology to law. It should be required reading for anyone who cares about the future of our legal system."
--David B. Wilkins, Lester Kissel Professor of Law, Harvard Law School

"AI For Lawyers is the definitive guide to artificial intelligence in the law. This isn't surprising given that Noah and Alexander created an AI-based business that's contributed to redefining the legal industry. Filled with insights and practical tips, every lawyer and legal professional should read this book."
--James Goodnow, CEO (Managing Partner), Fennemore Craig, P.C.

"Artificial intelligence is dramatically changing the practice of law and the global legal market. Lawyers have to learn not to live with it but to love it. What Waisberg and Hudek tell us about AI in law practice will at first be as disorienting, but then as reorienting, as was Richard Susskind's The End of Lawyers? a generation ago."
--Stephen Gillers, Elihu Root Professor of Law, NYU School of Law
