Guided interviews tutorial

Build your own guided interviews

Getting started with Legal Apps

Beginner
1 hr.

This is the best way to explore what it's like to design, build, and distribute your own legal practice automations. Guided interviews are a relatively simple type of automation (essentially just an online form that populates documents) but their basic structure is suitable for many different goals, including:

  • Determine eligibility for criminal record expungement. If end-user is eligible, automate court papers, e.g. Vanguard420
  • A DIY legal service App that allows you to create an automated revenue stream, e.g. this 'Make a Discretionary Trust' App by Chat Legal
  • Help tenants exercise a new rule that allows them to stay in their apartment by emailing their landlord a formal letter, e.g. Can't pay rent?

Make it real

At some point, you're going to need to collect feedback on your App; you should activate your App and share it will colleagues (we're also happy to take a look).

You should also consider adding a database to your App so that you can collect data for both analytics and to easily automate documents in the future.
