The Complete Guide to Lawyers and How They are Disrupting the Legal Industry

Lawyers are legal professionals who are trained in the law. And for this reason, they are called lawyers. They advise their clients on legal issues, represent them in court and draft legal documents. 

But there is more to being a lawyer than just the law. A lawyer also needs to have interpersonal skills that will allow him or her to get along with people of different backgrounds and personalities. 

Advances in Artificial Intelligence in the Legal Industry 

Artificial intelligence is a revolutionary tool that has been changing the legal industry. It has been able to do things like help with discovery, predict outcomes and finding documents. 

Legal professionals believe AI will change everything about the legal industry from how they practice law to how they invest in their education. For example, in an interview with The American Lawyer, Mara Faccini said “In 10 years, law firms won’t need associates because all of their work will be done by technology.” 

When artificial intelligence meets the law, it can help with many aspects of legal work. These include document review, legal research, and drafting. 

AI will eventually be able to do everything that a lawyer does. Law firms may have more lawyers in the future because AI will take care of all the tedious tasks for them. 

What does the future of Law look like with Artificial Intelligence? 

The future of law is uncertain with the introduction of AI. It remains unclear whether or not AI will be able to do all the tasks that lawyers do. However, it has been shown that many tasks such as detecting fraudulent transactions and detecting if someone is lying can be done by machines. Law firms are already using artificial intelligence to come up with legal research topics and scenarios for their clients. 

Some people worry that this will lead to a shortage in lawyers and a great deal of job losses among those who work in the law field. Others believe that the introduction of AI may free up time for lawyers to focus on more complicated cases and allow them to spend more time on complex legal issues which require creativity and human decision-making skills such as making arguments or logic, as well as empathy.
