Artificial Intelligence and Legal Practice

I was invited to deliver a paper on the impact of artificial intelligence on lawyers and legal practice. There has been a considerable amount of concern that automated systems are going to replace lawyers and that sentences will be imposed by computer. I don’t see that as a future.

Along with Richard Susskind I see a more nuanced outcome that will involve the automation of repetitive tasks and a redeployment of lawyers into other areas of legal activity.

The Paper was delivered to the NZ Law 25th Anniversary Conference in Auckland on 29 September 2017. A copy of the paper and the presentation follow.
