ChatGPT: 5 Ways Law Firms Can Apply This New AI Technology to Their Daily Practice

by | Mar 7, 2023 | Features, Productivity

From eDiscovery tools to video conferencing software, technology has significantly improved the practice of law. ChatGPT is one of the newest technologies that promises to further transform the legal profession.

What Is ChatGPT?

Quite simply, ChatGPT is a type of Artificial Intelligence (AI) that can respond to a query in a human-like manner. This AI chatbot was launched by OpenAI in November 2022. Users like ChatGPT because it provides clear responses and details in plain English. Since its launch, thousands of attorneys have used ChatGPT to assist with legal tasks such as research and drafting.

How Can Law Firms Use ChatGPT?

While it won’t replace lawyers, ChatGPT will help law firms save time, gain a competitive edge and increase efficiency. Here are 5 ways law firms can use ChatGPT technology.

  1. As a research tool for statutes, regulations and case law.

Capabilities: ChatGPT can quickly and efficiently process vast amounts of legal data, sort through large volumes of databases/legal documents and provide relevant case law statutes/summaries. 

  1. Prepare legal documents and workable drafts of demand letters, employment agreements, nondisclosures and pleadings.

Capabilities: ChatGPT can provide relevant information for most practice areas.

  1. Provide preliminary analyses/recommendations on a variety of legal issues and topics.

Capabilities: ChatGPT can aid in the legal decision-making process, but it isn’t designed to replace the judgment of an experienced attorney.

  1. Review and draft contracts.

Capabilities: ChatGPT can identify potential risks, redundancies and inconsistencies. It can also provide suggestions that may improve the language in a legal document.

  1. Suggest arguments lawyers can make within a brief.

Capabilities: Based on a prompt, ChatGPT can draft a brief that includes several legal arguments.
