AI and the legal profession - Horizon scanning report - The Law Society


The Law Society has produced a new horizon scanning report on Artificial Intelligence (AI) and the legal profession. Over the next few years, AI will start to have a noticeable impact on the legal profession. This report explores the use of AI in legal practice, in areas such as document analysis and delivery, legal advisor support and case outcome prediction. It considers the likely implications on legal jobs, types of legal work and the impact on fee structures and costs. The report also examines the legal issues arising from the increased use of AI systems, including issues around transparency, ethics and liability.
