Can Generative AI Already Do Basic Legal Tasks as Well as Lawyers?

AI can be used in a range of legal applications, but it still requires the expertise and oversight of a lawyer to ensure outputs are correct, appropriate, and relevant to client needs. Industry analysts and commentators have argued that generative AI will soon be able to do much of the work that is typically done by junior attorneys.

The authors of this article tested a well-known GenAI model to better understand the implications of AI for legal professionals,—to see if it could draft client alerts, nondisclosure agreements (NDAs), and briefs tasks that are often done by junior attorneys.

We found that GenAI models can be helpful tools, but their outputs often require significant additional work from a lawyer who can put facts into context, analyze nuances, and finesse language. While there is a future that involves AI playing a strong supporting role in helping junior lawyers get their work done more efficiently, it would appear that their jobs are safe, at least for the time being.
