The legal profession is undergoing a transformation driven by the rapid adoption of artificial intelligence (“AI”). Traditional legal practice as characterized by rote document drafting and review is becoming obsolete while AI is creating entirely new categories of legal work and giving lawyers powerful tools with which to address previously intractable legal issues. Timely adoption of AI inside today’s legal practice will be essential for attorneys trying to keep pace with clients and organizations now operating at Internet speed and cloud computing scale. Nonetheless, these changes will require attorneys to face new ethical issues in deciding how much autonomy the AI can be given and whether and to what extent the new legal AI can be trusted!
