When you request help from legal assistants it is common to receive follow-up confirmations and clarifications before work begins. When you request assistance from CoCounsel it will also confirm its understanding of your request before proceeding.
A. How the AI works
Generally, CoCounsel will restate your request in its own words and provide an intuitive outline of the information it will use. To proceed, make corrections or confirm CoCounsel's response. Different skills accomplish different work, so CoCounsel's responses will vary by skill.
1. Legal research
During legal research, CoCounsel will confirm the request, any relevant date range, and the publication status for your query. Make changes or click "Submit request."
2. Database research
During database research, CoCounsel will confirm your database research request. Make changes or click "Submit request."
3. File-based skills
CoCounsel's responses will vary by file-based skill.
