Organising, storing, and retrieving information… there is literally a science to these things.
Do lawyers learn any of this science? Procurement professionals? Commercial teams?
No wonder most contract databases end in disaster. We dump the work of putting them together onto people with no experience or knowledge of how to do it.
How about we draw on the wisdom of division of labour?
Let the computer scientists organise and build the database.
Let the lawyers navigate, interpret, and act upon its information.
Let both groups collaborate over the hairy bits.
