Robot Lawyers

Lawyers have been on the threatened list for robot job takeovers for some time. While considers courtroom trial lawyers low risk, paralegals and legal researchers are doomed.

Wired sees a different possibility. They point to debt-related lawsuits. Nearly one tenth of legal cases now have to do with debts or evictions, and the people being sued often don’t even show up, let alone come to court with a lawyer. The law firms that produce the cases get a judgment and often their opponent’s wages are garnished, without any need for the plaintiff to prove the details of the debt they claim.

Priming ChatGPT to generate bulk complaints could make this kind of legal practice even easier and more profitable.


Wired goes on to say that the problem isn’t just a matter of making nuisance lawsuits easier to file. “The real risk from AI in law isn’t putting lawyers out of work;” says author Keith Porcaro, “it’s overloading courts with work, and sticking lawyerless defendants with the bill.”

Prorcaro goes on to imagine a sunnier outcome: people who can’t afford lawyers getting legal support from automated chatbots.  He proposes changes to the way courts are organized that could recognize and make use of new technologies without swamping the court systems with poor quality civil suits.

Chat GPT’s opinion

We asked ChatGPT’s opinion. Here it is:

As an AI language model, I am capable of generating text, including legal documents. However, it is important to note that I am not a licensed attorney and I cannot provide legal advice or representation. It is crucial to seek the guidance of a qualified attorney who is licensed to practice law in your jurisdiction for any legal issues.

There are also resources available for those who cannot afford an attorney, such as legal aid organizations, pro bono services, and self-help legal clinics. These resources can assist with the preparation of legal documents and provide guidance on navigating legal proceedings.

Ultimately, while I can assist with generating legal documents, it is important to seek the advice of a licensed attorney to ensure that your legal rights are protected and that your documents are properly drafted and executed.
