Abstract

The emergence of a new 'industrial formation' around legal practice, where technology is embedded in and entangled with new patterns of work and expertise – of "politics, labor, culture, and capital" – transforms how law and lawyers register facts about the world. Artificial Intelligence-driven knowledge is not fixed: it relies on constantly unfolding and inherently uncertain automation systems and methods. How lawyers interact with these systems and how the systems are bound up with ideas of expertise suggests, to put it in Knorr Cetina’s words, that lawyers become ‘methods of inquiry’ in a sense, managing and coordinating the ‘maintenance and repair’ work that is "required to keep algorithms doing what they do."
