Chief Justice Andrew Bell flags generative AI as major challenge for justice system as Supreme Court of NSW celebrates bicentenary

The Chief Justice of Australia’s oldest court, the Supreme Court of NSW, highlighted generative AI as a significant challenge to the justice system. He discussed the potential impact of AI on evidence admissibility, fraud, expert reports, and legal education.  The use of AI in the legal field requires caution and responsibility, and legal organisations are developing guidelines for AI use. 

The celebration of the Supreme Court’s bicentenary highlighted that the court has historically been a forum reflecting political and social issues. The court’s involvement in high-profile cases and the live-streaming of decisions were also discussed. Furthermore, a book that marked the bicentenary explored prominent cases and legal figures, including the 1838 Myall Creek Massacre case, reflecting on the court’s historical role in addressing significant societal issues.
