AI is coming for lawyers, again

The legal profession has been identified as a ripe target for A.I. automation in the past.

But the march of A.I. in law turned out to be more measured. The technology’s tools served more as aides than as replacements — and the same could be true this time.

The rapid progress in large language models is a significant advance. 

“At its best, the technology seems like a very smart paralegal, and it will improve,” 

New A.I. technology will change the practice of law, and some jobs will be eliminated, but it also promises to make lawyers and paralegals more productive, and to create new roles.

The work of humans will increasingly be to concentrate on developing industry expertise, exercising judgment in complex legal matters, offering strategic guidance and building trusted relationships with clients.
