French legal startup, Wonder.Legal, got it right with their “auto-magical” document creation system. Many online legal sites allow you to build a DIY template with a wizard system. But Wonder.Legal takes it one step further. When you use the question-answer interface on the Wonder.Legal website, your answers magically appear in the document you’re building. This means that instead of answering questions in the abstract, you have a context for the questions. This can help you provide more relevant answers. It’s smart technology!
While Wonder.Legal has one of the best legal technology solutions we’ve seen, their templates will only suit you if you are a true do-it-yourself (DIY) user who knows exactly what you need. That’s because Wonder.Legal doesn’t offer any advice or guidance on which template to use for your case, nor any opportunity to speak to a customer service representative or a lawyer.
Wonder.Legal is a good option for creating a simple legal document if you’re not fussed about seeking legal advice. On the other hand, if you want to ask a lawyer to review your document, Wonder.Legal won’t be able to help you. In that case, you might be better using one of Australia’s full service online legal solutions like Legal123 or LawPath.
Although Wonder.Legal is a French company, the small range of documents they provide for Australia are generally well drafted to accommodate for local laws. Check out one of the “wonders” of the legal world (you see what we did there).
