In-house lawyers use legal precedent documents every day and are grateful for the time they save but do we ever stop to think ‘just how good is this document, and how exactly does it help?’ and what test would we use to assess it? Until now, chances are you would rely on lawyer’s intuition and why not, it’s what everyone’s been doing since… forever. This article is about three propositions. First, it suggests the criteria for a ‘good’ precedent to meet the organisation’s goals while creating efficiencies inside an in-house legal team. Secondly, it makes the case for using techniques that are grounded in science, not intuition, in applying those criteria and thirdly, it describes ADAmetrics, an innovation to assess legal precedents against those criteria.
