Want to use ChatGPT to help prepare for court? This is what lawyers say you should and shouldn’t do

The increasing use of generative AI chatbots to assist non-lawyers in court proceedings has led Queensland, Victoria, New Zealand, and England to issue guidelines on the responsible use of AI chatbots in legal contexts. 

While AI can provide benefits such as improving access to justice for those who cannot afford a lawyer, there are concerns about its accuracy and potential risks. Queensland Courts emphasise that AI chatbots are not a substitute for a qualified lawyer and may provide inaccurate legal information. 

The guidelines aim to raise awareness of the strengths and limitations of chatbots and highlight the importance of accuracy and confidentiality. Additionally, their will always be a role for real lawyers in understanding the law, applying it to individual cases, and ensuring the ethical and confidential use of AI tools.
