EDI for the Legal industry
To be enforceable, a contract must have these basic elements:
  1. Offer
  2. Acceptance
  3. Consideration.
If the parties want their EDI transactions to be enforceable as contracts, the transaction sets must contain all the information traditionally necessary to form a paper contract.
EDI contracts usually comport with these requirements by communicating a purchase order transaction set (the offer); a purchase order (P.O.) acknowledgment transaction set (the acceptance); and the electronic payment (the consideration).

Are EDI contracts enforceable?
The short answer is probably yes, if one analogizes from the law applicable to the conventional paper contracts signed by real people.
Since EDI usually involves the transfer of goods between merchants, the Uniform Commercial Code ("UCC") will probably apply and its provisions liberally interpreted to facilitate the formation of the legally enforceable commercial contracts.
At a minimum, the "statute of frauds" requirements of the UCC must be met -- the contract must be signed and in writing if it involves the sale of goods for over $500. But EDI transactions are not in writing nor do they involve a human signature.

Because EDI transactions are the "digital analogs" of written contracts, their electronic equivalents, they should be as enforceable as conventional paper contracts, provided they can be properly authenticated.
