What is Legal Engineering?

Legal Engineering is a new profession that bridges law and code to enable the digital transformation of legal work. Legal Engineers bring both legal and IT competencies. Legal logic is translated by Legal Engineers using tools such as Forest into a format that can be understood by both lawyers and IT systems.

Legal Engineers need strong logical skills, a creative mindset, and an interest in the “why” behind the law. An understanding of code is a benefit to Legal Engineers, but tools such as Forest enable users to work through a no-code interface. The best Legal Engineers are great legal thinkers with a legal tech skillset.
