The Professional Version is Beta Software and is  only £60.00 per year E-mail Us at: lawainow@gmail.com for more information.  You are welcome to try out our Professional version for 2 week before we ask for payment of only £60.00 per year.  With big legal resources charging thousands of pounds per yea why not us out. 

What does Beta mean, it means that the software is being trialed in limited setting.  The professional version is very complex to manage.  The beta version of the professional software may from time to time go off-line for a day or a week while we move servers around.   Also from time to time some of the professional data that is only used in the professional version may go off-line from time to time.  We hope this will be limited to the odd day or a couple of hours. However we used more than one server so it may default back to the standard data instead of the professional data set.


Because of Covid-19 we are currently not going out to give Presentations or install our software in Solicitors or Business, currently we will arrange with someone who is technical within your Firm or Business on installation instructions via e-mail.

Back To Free Standard Version

Any private individual can use this powerful legal resource for free.  However, we hope this software will be mainly helpful to Charities, and individual on low income who cannot get legal support. For example someone going to an Unemployment benefit Tribunal.

DISCLAIMER
ALL INFORMATION IS FOR EDUCATION PURPOSES ONLY AND MAYBE OUT OF DATE OR INCOMPLETE OR MAY NOT YET EXIST WITHIN OUR ARTIFICIAL INTELLIGENT SYSTEM.  WE DO NOT HOLD EVERY ACT OR REGULATION OR HAVE ALL OF THE CURRENT CASE LAW.  WE ARE WORKING TO IMPROVE THE AMOUNT OF MATERIAL THE ARTIFICIAL INTELLIGENCE SYSTEM HAS READ.  ALSO PLEASE CHECK THE SOURCES OF INFORMATION AGAINST THE ORIGINAL SOURCE OR OTHER SOURCES.  IT IS VITAL IN VALIDATING INFORMATION WHEN DOING YOUR OWN LEGAL RESEARCH THAT TWO DIFFERENT SOURCES OF THE SAME INFORMATION MATCH. 


WE HAVE DESIGNED A CASE REFERENCE AND LEGISLATION REFERENCE AREA THAT REFERENCE ASSOCIATED CASES AND ASSOCIATED LEGISLATION, MOSTLY IT WORKS WELL.   PLEASE NOTE SOME OF THESE REFERENCES ARE NOT VALID ON SOME OLDER MATERIAL THIS IS DUE TO A BUG IN THE PROGRAM THAT I NOW HOPE IS RESOLVED.  THE NEGATIVE ASPECT OF THIS IS THAT YOU NEED TO CHECK THESE AGAINST ORIGINAL SOURCE TO SEE IF THEY ARE USEFUL. HOWEVER YOU CAN USE THE SOFTWAR WITHOUT USING THESE ADDITIONAL FEATURES.

ERRORS CAN SOMETIMES HAPPEN IN TRANSLATION VIA THE ARTIFICIAL INTELLIGENT SYSTEM. THIS IS WHY IT IS IMPORTANT TO ALWAY REFERENCE THE ORIGINAL SOURCE BEFOR USING ANY OF THE MATERIAL.  AN EXAMPLE OF THIS IS THAT IN OLDER MATERIAL YOU MAY HAVE AN ACT SAY s.121 THAT SHOULD BE s.12(1).

JUDGEMENT THOUGTS ARE BASICALLY WHETHER THE JUDGES IN A CASE HAVE ALLOWED THE APPEAL OR NOT, THIS USES ARTIFICIAL INTELLIGENCE TO WORK OUT WHAT THE JUDGES CONCLUSIONS ARE.  THIS IS NOT PERFECT AND MAY EVEN MISS ENOUGH JUDGES DECISSIONS AS TO GIVE AN IDEA THAT SOMEONES WON AN APPEAL EVEN IF THEY HAVE LOST THE APPEL. MOST OF THE TIME IT WORKS QUITE WELL BUT AGAIN YOU SHOULD READ THE ORIGINAL SOURCE FULLY IF IT'S IMPORTANT TO YOUR ARGUMENT.  

NEGATIVE AND POSITIVE IDEAS, THIS USES ARTIFICIAL INTELLIGENCE TO EXTRACT THINGS LIKE CRIMINAL OFFENCES WITHIN AN ACT.  BECAUSE IT USES ARTIFICIAL INTELLIGENCE IT DOES NOT ALWAYS EXTRACT EVERYTHING. PLEASE BE AWARE THAT THERE MAYBE OTHER ITEMS OF IMPORTANCE OR IDEAS WITHIN AN ACT THAT IT MISSES COMPLETELY.  IT'S ALSO DESIGNED ONLY TO FIND CERTAIN THINGS THAT MAYBE OF INTEREST TO SOMEONE DOING LEGAL RESEARCH. 

JUDGEMENT THOUGHTS AND NEGATIVE AND POSITIVE IDEA ARE ADDITIONAL INFORMATION AND USEFUL INDICATORS BUT THEY SHOULD NOT BE TOTALLY RELIED ON.  PLEASE CHECK ORIGINAL SOURCE.

DISCLAIMER ENDS:

HOW THE PROJECT STARTED (NOT REQUIRED TO READ UNLESS INTERESTED)

Before reading this please consider getting involved if you have an LLB(Hon) or Higher.  We are always looking for people who would be interested in writing a free article on any area of law, UK Only.  We will put your name at the top of the article.

Legal data means "Big Data" huge amounts of legal data from primary and secondary legislation to tens of thousands of cases.  Then we have all the tribunal cases and from immigration, land, employment, tax to universal credits.  All this information is available somewhere but, having to track it down and collect it and analyze it using artificial intelligent software is a huge project.

Currently we provide the Standard version free of charge, but is no where near as good as the professional version of the software.  But is a good starting point for people who need to do legal research because they can not afford a solicitor.  Mainly people who are on universal credits will benefit the most using our free software or charities who help people on low income.

Having a HND in Computer programming and having programmed computer for a very long time, that I enjoy, and also having an LLB (Hon) I realized that law is all about finding the correct information fast.  People have this idea that law firms already have the answers to an issue before the question is even asked.  Sometimes true but mostly not but usually any legal questions needs evaluation and this means legal research. I realized that there is way too much information in law for any one person to find relevant information quickly and easily.  Even while in University using very expensive legal resources, it could sometime take a very long time to find the correct answer.  Sometimes one big resource would not have the answer. Then I would have to look at another resource.  Sometimes I just could not find the answer and would have to revert to non electronic means like books etc.

I have always had an interest in artificial intelligence and therefore thought how can I combine both to create a legal resource that learns.  Therefore I designed an artificial intelligence engine that read legislation and cases.  Then I designed the LawAI Viewer that can be used over the internet to ask a question. The viewers also been designed to help find information quickly by grouping legal and non legal jargon together.  For example if you enter "Injury" it will list in the "Select Priority Word or Phase"  box injury, duty-of-care, injury-negligence-duty, injury-or-ill, negligence.  Now if you type in negligence it returns, caparo, duty, negligence-and-aggravated-damages, negligence-and-damages, negligence-and-duty-of-care, the list goes on to include psychiatric-injury, negligence-tort etc.  Another example if you select duty-of-care, you will come across causation , remoteness etc. Within each of these there is a list of possible answers.  These are all grouped by the artificial intelligent engine.

REQUEST AN UPDATE

There are two main reasons why you may requests an update.  Firstly, because it does not have an answer to your particular question. Secondly because the Area of Law is in the wrong category.

STANARD AND PROFESSIONAL VERSIONS

BOTH - Return you Short List of Possible Areas for your Answer.

BOTH - Provide a list of answers to a single question.

BOTH - highlight main areas of interest identified by the artificial intelligent system.

BOTH - Find on page highlights any Key Word.

BOTH - Case and legislation reference, so will find other associated cases and legislation.

BOTH - Judges thoughts, this is basically a summary of the judges decision whether to allow an appeal or not. This is only available within information that is new, mostly started in 2020. For example, if you read four cases, that are decided in a similar way, it is fair to think, this is how a case with similar facts maybe decided in the future. Quickly being able to identify  who won the case is very useful before deciding if you need to read the whole case.

BOTH - Negative and Positive Ideas, this is another unique feature within our software. Again this was brought in around 2020 and will not be available on older answers. I really wished to know other key features about what I was looking at without have to for example read a whole act of parliament or look through an index to find important information like, does a civil act have any criminal penalties built into that piece of legislation.  

PROFESSIONAL VERSION - With the professional version only, available for Legal Firms or Business we can add special information relating to their legal firm or business that they would like made available for their staff to use.

PROFESSIONAL VERSION - List up to thirty possible answers to a single question while the standard version usually ten.

PROFESSIONAL VERSION - The professional version uses pro extensions on data returned this means that the information is designed only for the professional version and is not accessible within the standard version.  It usually returns more answers up to 30 answers for a single question.  This means more choice.

PROFESSIONAL VERSION (NEW) - One button click to the full legislation or cases being referenced, it also takes you to the exact location of the information in legislation or within a case that was originally searched. The one button click to the full version of the document currently being rolled out to our different servers and may not be available for every case or act currently.  Most full act or cases should be mostly available within the next 12 months.

PROFESSIONAL VERSION - Important feature (New) legal area, we have allowed the artificial intelligent engine to decide on the area of law this is not perfect but you can get say thirty returned answer for a single question. Then reduced down the thirty results to that specific area of law using a filter.  This feature is only available in the professional version and I have found it useful already.  However if you cannot find what your looking for within the topic area, then you should look through the full list.  Think of this as a filter.   It sometimes saves you from reading through the whole list of 30 answers for a question.  Mostly however the answer is near the top of the list  To select a specific area of law is difficult for most humans at times and sometimes it gets it wrong but you can always request an update on that list of answers when it is wrong.  Usually it is good and can be helpful. These are the following area that can be filtered within the professional version only.

The filters allows you to select Tort and it will show only answer that's area is relating to Tort.  Again the artificial intelligent system can sometimes get this wrong.  But you can just select All and see all returned results.  It is usually however very helpful in quickly finding answers in a specific area of law.  If nothing is found then select ALL and read through each answer.    

Tort- filters things like physical or psychological injury or some type of harm answers.
Contract - filters anything to do with agreements like consumer answers.
Public - anything to do with public bodies but sometimes may also be found under Universal.
Family - filters anything to do with any family member or family law answers.
Estate - filter this is mainly about private law for example Wills or Administration.
Land - filter anything to do with land this may cross over with Public at times for answers.
EU - filter we do not have much EU law but this filter should be used if that law came from the EU.
Company - filter anything to do with company law or related to what a company does type answer.
Equity - filer financial or money type answers.
Criminal - filters anything to do with the police or crime type answers.
Immigration - filter we have some law on immigration so this will filter that law .

PROFESSIONAL VERSION - Update requests, we prioritise all update requests and new questions first for the professional version of the software.  The standard version is always updated last of all.  Therefore attempting to provide the newest material first to the professional version.

PROFESSIONAL VERSION - Better interface on the viewer, this is mostly down to the amount of time spend improving the viewers I have prioritized the professional viewer over the standard viewer.

Crown Copyright Licence

We rely on the Crown Copyright Licence that allows anybody to copy material  or use material in any way they wish whether commercially or not.  Please note this only applies with Crown Copyright because they have provided a free licence.  If this was not made available by government we could not put this FREE SOFTWARE ON THE INTERNET.

Artificial Intelligent System has Read this Information to Date  21/09/2020

If you are reading this in 2021 this information will be out of date, the artificial intelligent system would have read a lot more information. Please note there is always a possibility that some have been missed out or repealed.

Most of the Supreme Court Judgments apart from the very newest.

House of Lords Case before supreme court cases we have some of these but certainly not all.

Appeal Court Cases Civil and Criminal again we have some of these but certainly not all.

High Court Cases - again we have some of these but certainly not all.

Tribunal Cases from Employment to Immigration, the artificial intelligent system has read some of these.

Main Acts of Parliament - from 2020 back to 1990 some thirty years also lots of important acts before 1990.
We have worked forward from 1800 forward by about 30 years. We still have some way to do on reading all primary legislation but still include other acts while doing legal research.

Secondary Legislation like regulations - we have only got a small amount of secondary legislation to date starting back from 2020.  We never include all secondary legislation for example road closures for new or rebuilding roads can be put into secondary legislation. We just do not ever put those in because they have time limit on usefulness. 

EU law - none at all unless it relates to UK law and has been included because of previous research. However EU law included in domestic law is usually included at the point domestic law is read by the artificial intelligent system.

Regional Law England, Scotland and Wales:

Most Primary regional law for Wales.
Some Primary Legislation for England including Wales see main acts above.
Very little Regional Primary Law for Scotland and Northern Ireland.

Secondary Legislation for Wales quite a bit but not all.
Secondary Legislation for England including Wales Small amount.
Secondary Legislation for Scotland and Northern Ireland very little.

Artificial Intelligence What about Law Not Yet Read

The artificial intelligence gets better the more law it reads.  However within law often primary legislation or case law within an area will reference related secondary legislation and vice versa.  Also supreme court judges, appeal judges and high court judges often reference other cases and act relating to a certain area.  Therefore even if the artificial intelligent engine has not read that particular regulation it often find it due to a connected link like case or primary, secondary legislation.

Bottle Neck Problem

This project was started a long time back over four years so why has it taken so long. Designing the artificial intelligent engine has been on-going.  Designing custom software to upload to the cloud, has taken time. Designing the LawAI viewer and improving as also taken time.

Although the artificial intelligent engine can analyze several act or cases within an hour that is not really the bottle neck. Computer power just means more computers.  I have found the bottle neck is obtaining and downloading from the Internet legislation and case law, it is very time consuming. Currently the artificial intelligent system has read very roughly about 2200 primary acts of parliament to 21/09/2020, These have all been downloaded from the internet to read. Still much more to download. This does not include secondary legislation or case law. 

Once information is collected, read and analyzed it is ready to be uploaded to the cloud.  The data uploaded is generated by the artificial intelligent system. All the data is uploaded to the cloud and I am working on my own servers for more future band width.  Currently I have a small server and a web-hosted server I pay for to help keep this site running. All the answers from the artificial intelligent systems are put on these two servers. 

From a user prospective, they can either download my LawAI Viewer from off the Internet anywhere in the world, or if it is a commercial customer we go and install the software on their machines. During the Covid-19 lockdown we can provide instructions over the internet for installation of our professional version.

How It Works

The user just asks a legal question and the system returns a very small list of best possible areas for answer,  The user select an area then the LawAI viewer displays a list of answers close to the original question.  The user selects an answer and usually read the highlighted area that relates to their question. This takes only seconds it a little bit like a Google search for specific legal answers but much more advanced.

Below Main Layout of Information (Answer)

Start of page Layout

At Top - The file name of the document - this usually is case name or act name.

Abstraction - This comes next and is a small paragraph explaining what the file is about within about 8 lines.

Main information Found - This is a small paragraph that contains the very small answer selected in the list about about 8 lines.

Main Paragraph - This size may change but about 1 A4 page size quite large and provides context to the answer.  The answer is an important part and is normally highlighted in grey.  Other important information is highlighted in other colours.  This allows a user to go directly to the most important part of the answer.  This is all selected via the artificial intelligence engine.

Second Main Paragraph - usually you will not have a second main paragraph but sometimes you do.

Related Cases Found - This should list other important cases relating to the same issue, this is all done via artificial intelligence and some cases maybe less relevant than others.

All Other Related Cases Found - These are less important cases but may have some relevance.

Related Ideas and Concept - header

Idea Map - Judgment Thoughts - This is how judges have decided the main cases. There maybe more than one judges decision.

Idea Map - Positive or Negative Thought - Header

Positive Thought - The artificial intelligent system pulls out information within the whole of the document it puts relevance on that is positive. For example if there is a certain defense that is available.

Negative Thought - The artificial intelligent system pulls out information that maybe negative for example any criminal penalties within a civil act.
