Legal translation continues to play a critical role in the modern world. There is a high demand for legal translators in recent years especially in developing countries like Indonesia. This study aims to understand how digital technology such as machine learning is being adopted and integrated into legal translation education. In particular, this study attempts to shed light on the use of such technology in education to produce the translation document that is equivalence of its legal intent. This study also explores the expected challenges facing the implementation of digital technology in the legal translation classroom. The analysis work is conducted based on the data obtained through the literature searching method known as Preferred Reporting Items for Systematic reviews and Meta-Analyses (PRISMA). The selected articles are collected from Scopus and Sinta database. The data synthesis of 71 articles is conducted with the support of NVivo software. Expert review was then conducted before summarizing the findings. The results reveal that the adoption of the new digital technology in legal translation education is still at its infancy. It is found that the use of the machine learning tool in legal translation education is still lacking despite many believe of its usefulness and effectiveness. It is also found that the machine learning adoption can be achieved when all legal translator professionals agree to share their corpus. The collaborative work to build the corpus inside the machine learning tool is urgently required to achieve the high quality of the legal translation results.
