The COVID-19 pandemic may have more legal departments turning to contract tech for help navigating force majeure clauses or potential opportunities for savings. But don’t count on software being swapped for human beings anytime soon. Still, while contract tech may not be reducing the need for legal department head count, it could be influencing the types of skills employers are seeking out.
