About Us

Addressing the issues of pending cases, current backlogs and social injustices, with the help of AI

Adalat AI was incubated at MIT and Oxford, based on research conducted at Harvard.

We specialise in AI and LLM-driven solutions that address the pressing issues of case backlogs, prolonged delays in legal systems, and the ensuing social injustices caused by these delays. In collaboration with courts, we’re pioneering voice transcription software specifically designed to assist court judges and stenographers.

This tool, unlike generic, costly alternatives, is finely tuned to a comprehensive lexicon of legal jargon and Indian pronunciations, ensuring accuracy and relevancy in transcribing witness testimonies, court orders, and judgments.
