Artificial Intelligence for the legal profession:
The legal profession in India has to take cognisance of the impending rise of AI and its potential consequences especially after witnessing the astounding capabilities of chatGPT.
The nation has a massive population and a vast legal system with a huge backlog of court cases. The deployment of AI could make the system more efficient.
As the legal ecosystem in India continues to evolve, it is important for lawyers ( and more so, those who are preparing for or are in the early years of the profession) to stay informed about the use of AI bots and to be prepared to adapt to the changing landscape. With careful planning, the use of AI bots could help to improve the legal system in India and make legal services more accessible and affordable to people.
The knowledge on AI and law is scattered across various academic papers, specialized books, reports, opinions, notes, comments etc. Mostly only individual aspects or problems are focussed upon. The overall pragmatic bigger picture of the field is missing.
The aim of this monthlong Whatsapp delivered course is to provide a concise overview of the interplay between the two fields in a systematic manner. The course will focus on the approach of legal Practioner to artificial intelligence rather than the technical approach of computer scientists to law.
