We worked with the legal department of a Government Agency to design, develop and commission an Automated Legal Agreement Generation Portal. In the Agency’s existing process, there were several pain points, including:
We built the automated legal agreement generation portal on the back of a configurable, user-defined decision tree, where the appropriate legal document template(s) were automatically suggested to the user (Agency Officer) based on his/her answers to two or more leading questions.
The selected legal document template could then be further modified by allowing users to input the relevant details (e.g. receiving party, contractual period, etc) in order to produce a document which is ready to be shared. The final output is a downloadable Word Document, with the contractual details automatically populated. This is the first draft of the legal agreement which will be reviewed and eventually signed off by the Agency’s legal team.
This question and answer decision tree was designed to be configurable by system administrators, where administrators can add and edit questions, and implement conditional logic between an answer and the subsequent question. There was also a bespoke document manager where different versions of legal document templates can be managed and also have their usage tracked (e.g. most popular template downloaded).
The automated legal agreement generation portal has since saved the Agency tremendous amount of time in the management and creation of legal agreements, significantly reducing the back-and-forth in the identification of the right legal document template, the identification of the latest template version, and the manual population of contractual details. The first draft of these legal agreements can now be generated in a matter of minutes.
