Imagine If Law Schools Cared As Much About Affordable Tuition As They Do About ChatGPT!

Online legal research didn’t replace the need for lawyers to evaluate the cases those algorithms spit out, and AI-based legal tools aren’t going to replace humans making the final call on any decisions. In other words, whatever technologies emerge from the AI revolution, lawyers will always have to learn to be lawyers first.

But some law schools seem inordinately fixated on AI right now. At the risk of sounding old-fashioned, stick to the fundamentals. The core ethical questions haven’t changed — attorneys well-schooled in their obligations are going to do just as fine with some algorithm as they did with online research as their predecessors did with Shepardizing as their predecessors did with… whatever lawyers did before books.
