Generative Artificial Intelligence For Attorneys Is Coming

Since its debut, chatGPT has gained popularity practically everywhere. Now attorneys can benefit from chatGPT productivity in their work.

Law-focused generative AI tool Harvey was first discovered by David Wakeling, head of the markets innovation department at London-based legal firm Allen & overly, in September 2022.

To gauge its intellect, David intended to conduct an experiment. As a result, a few of the attorneys in his company used the system to write documents, answer basic legal queries, and send out initial draughts of messages to clients.

A little over 3,500 employees from the 43 offices of the organization used the application and submitted 40,000 questions. Afterwards, the business made the decision to apply OpenAI internally.

Harvey claims that 80% of the attorneys on the Allen & Overly team utilize the AI platform at least once a month. One-fourth of them now use it every day. Several significant businesses are beginning to use the platform, however.

A paradigm change, according to Wakeling, is just getting started. The legal sector might benefit greatly from this technology in my opinion.

Lillian Edwards, professor of law, innovation,and society at Newcastle University asserts that legal applications like contracts, convincing or license creation are a pretty safe field to use chatGPT and its relatives.

Law companies can employ a lot of highly standardized templates and precedent banks to scaffold document generation, making the results more predictable than with most free text outputs. As a result automated legal document generation has been growing for decades, even in the age of rule-based technology.

AI will continue to be utilized for entry-level labor according to Paris-based data protection attorney Daniel Sereduick.

Drafting legal documents can be a time-consuming chore, but AI appears to be fairly adept at it. The normative nature of contracts, policies, and other legal texts is common. Hence AI can perform a lot of the hard lifting because to its capacity to gather and synthesize knowledge.

The results need to be reviewed and closely monitored, say lawyers. Yet managing the inputs might be equally difficult.

Using such AI in Europe could be in violation of the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) which limits the amount of personal information that can be gathered and used by businesses.

Under the GDPR, law firms must have a solid legal justification before feeding any specific client data under their control into generative AI software.

When it comes to providing generative AI systems with personal data international regulation is already becoming more stringent.

Allen and overly are able to apply AI, but maintaining client confidentiality is equally crucial. The impact on productivity and efficiency will be significant.

Little activities that were formerly handled by lawyers are now delegated to AI by utilizing it. Still, it’s quite impressive!
