Rockville, Md.- July 7, 2022 –  After a period of low growth, weighed down by structural shifts in the print segment, the legal publishing market is on a path of renewal and long-term growth.  The use of Artificial Intelligence, machine learning, and natural language processing is diffusing broadly throughout the category, applied in research, analytics, and many tools that take users higher up the value chain beyond basic content.
