Further Discussion on “Legal Technology
摘要: 概念是反映客观事物本质属性的一种思维方式, 也是判断推理的基础, 没有概念便无法判断和推理。法律科技已经渗入司法和法律服务领域，其关键特征是法律和科技的融合产生了准司法和准法律服务的趋势。通过对法律科技文义及其本质属性分析，结合科学和技术在中国语境下合二为一的表述和理解，可准确定义法律科技的概念和本质内涵。准确定义法律科技对新技术在社会法治和社会治理领域的正确应用具有指导意义，对法律人提升法律科技应用的自觉意识和遵循法律职业伦理具有现实意义。
Abstract: Concept is a way of thinking that reflects the essential properties of objective things, and it is also the basis of judgment and reasoning, without which judgment and reasoning are impossible. Legal technology has penetrated into the field of justice and legal services, and its key feature is that the integration of law and technology has produced a trend of quasi-judicial and quasi-legal services. By analysing the meaning of legal science and technology and its essential attributes, combined with the representation and understanding of science and technology as one in the Chinese context, the concept and essence of legal science and technology can be accurately defined. An accurate definition of legal science and technology is of guiding significance for the proper application of new technologies in the field of social rule of law and social governance, and is of practical significance for legal professionals to enhance their consciousness of legal science and technology application and to follow the ethics of the legal profession.
