SALI: BUILDING COMMON STANDARDS FOR LEGAL SERVICES
On September 2nd 2020, The Artificial Lawyer (www.artificiallawyer.com) posted a video interview with Kelly Harbour, Director of Client Relations & Innovation at Goulston & Storrs.
The SALI Alliance has set itself a truly significant goal: to build a common standard for describing legal work, in effect a ‘common language’ to allow all lawyers, at least in the US for now, to turn the opaque and variable into the clear, shared and identifiable.
This taxonomy project has huge implications for the legal industry. It would lead to an increase in legal services transparency, and could drive up the use of fixed fees, and change how clients view price certainty in general when engaging with external providers.
