An avatar-based Summary Law Center on the Metaverse (reservation only) enables users to ask for legal advice from lawyers without feeling intimidated as they are using avatars. The office also plans to deploy a robot lawyer*1, an AI service that enables users to ask about laws and regulations that govern the metaverse.

3. Story behind developing SAKURA Law Office Metaverse
Although technology continues to evolve as digital technologies advance, traditional legal procedures remain complex, taking enormous time and effort to address a legal issue in most cases. SAKURA Law Office has been pursuing user-friendly services, offering non-face-to-face legal consulting services via phones, social networking services, and more. With these new metaverse-based services, users can ask for legal advice from anywhere at any time, free from time and location constraints. In addition, making the initial contact via avatars will help mitigate apprehensive feelings even more than non-face-to-face sessions. SAKURA Law Office will offer an environment where people can ask for legal advice more casually on issues that they feel difficult to confide in. Establishing laws and rules that govern business dealings in the metaverse will become more important going forward. Against this backdrop where a diverse range of metaverse businesses continue to emerge and expand, Sakura Law Office will offer relevant information to businesses and individuals through metaverse seminars, and more.
