(Artificial Intelligence won't replace lawyers anytime soon. Lawyers who use AI
will replace lawyer who do not use AI)
Today, AI is the most heated and debated topic. Different people have different
opinion regarding Ai some argues that Ai will take all the jobs whereas some
argues that it is good to adopt new technology as technology always made life
We cannot imagine today's life without technology, we depend on technology for
everything, for example Job, Business, Profession, Conversation, we depend on
technology for every purpose. Technology made everything easy but also it
replaced outdated things for example TVs are replaced by LEDs and Smart TVs, not
just this Jobs of Bank Tallers are at risk because many bank employees have been
replaced by AI.
Artificial intelligence (AI), also known as machine intelligence, is a branch of
computer science that focuses on building and managing technology that can learn
to autonomously make decisions and carry out actions on behalf of human beings.
In simple words it is the ability of machine to perform human task such as
learning, problem solving, planning, decision making etc. Self-driving cars such
as tesla is also an example of AI. It is being used mostly in every industry
such as retail, banking, public sector etc.
Strong AI And Weak AI
It is known as artificial general intelligence; it is a kind of ai we see in
movies such as movies based on robots. It can solve problems without being
trained just like humans.
It is also known as narrow ai, it is trained and designed to complete a
particular task for example Apple's Siri uses weak ai.
The term artificial intelligence was coined in 1956, "Artificial Intelligence"
first adopted by American Computer scientist John McCarthy at the Dartmouth
Conference. For the first time, AI was coined as an academic field. The term AI
became more popular from OpenAI's ChatGPT, people came to know more about
artificial intelligence because of ChatGPT when it became available for general
Artificial Intelligence In Field Of Law
Like every sector, Ai is being used in the legal field for various purposes. Ai
is playing a very crucial role in transforming legal system not only in India
but worldwide. There are various software that are being used by the lawyers,
attorneys, law firms etc. To automate their work so they can reduce their over
burden. At present very few legal professionals are aware of it and using it.
However, the use of Ai is increasing rapidly. There are various developments in
legal some are-
Mandaar Giri a final year law student developed a tool called Law Bot Pro. This
tool contains all the Indian legal knowledge, and any person can ask any query,
doubt, rights etc. related to law and this tool will give the advice within few
seconds at free of cost. According to Mandaar Giri this tool will reduce the
burden on the advocates. This Ai tool will also help people to take informed
The Supreme Court of India is now using Ai, recently Supreme Court of India uses
ai in which the apex court uses ai for live transcription of court proceedings.
This will increase the efficiency of the judicial system. The name of
transcription system is "SUVAS" (SUPREME COURT VIDHIK ANUVAAD SOFTWARE). It is
developed by the Centre for Development of Advance Computing. This tool can also
translate legal papers in vernacular languages. This tool had increased the
efficiency and accuracy of the court.
The Supreme Court has launched an AI-powered portal called SUPACE, which stands
for Supreme Court Portal for Assistance in Courts Efficiency. This portal is
developed to enhance the productivity of the legal researchers and judges by
providing them with relevant information, case files, and other document
Supreme Today Ai is a legal research platform, it uses Artificial Intelligence
which helps the lawyers to find relevant case law quickly. It is available for
all the lawyers in India.
There are many AI tools that are useful for lawyers, but some of the most
popular and versatile ones include:
Legal research tools:
These tools can help lawyers find relevant case
law, statutes, and regulations quickly and efficiently. Some popular legal
research tools include Case text, and LexisNexis.
Document review tools:

review, and contract analysis. Some popular NLP tools for lawyers include Anaqua,
Lex Machina, and Ravel Law.
These are just a few of the many AI tools that are available to lawyers. The
specific tools that are most useful will vary depending on the type of law that
the lawyer practices and the specific tasks that they need to automate.
In addition to the tools mentioned above, there are also a number of AI-powered
legal startups that are developing new and innovative ways to use AI to improve
the efficiency and effectiveness of the legal profession.
Some of these startups include:
Legal Robot: This startup uses AI to help lawyers create and draft legal
LegalZoom: This online legal services company uses AI to automate many of the
tasks involved in drafting legal documents, such as wills, trusts, and

innovative ways to use AI to improve the legal profession.
The development of AI in the Indian legal system is a complex and challenging
process, but it also has the potential to bring about significant benefits. As
AI continues to develop, it is important to carefully consider the challenges
and opportunities associated with this technology in order to ensure that it is
used in a responsible and ethical way.
Advantages and Disadvantages of Artificial Intelligence in Legal Field
Artificial intelligence (AI) is rapidly changing the Shape of legal field it
has various advantages and disadvantages some are:
AI is developed with the purpose of making life easier, simpler and free from
over burden. The judicial system of India is overburdened of caseload even in
the lower courts takes years to decide a simple case due to lack of the
efficiency. The Indian judiciary is facing a severe caseload burden. Over 5.02
crore cases are pending in various courts across India, according to Law
Minister Arjun Ram Meghwal. AI can help to reduce the caseload burden by
automating tasks such as legal research, document review, drafting contracts,
- Job displacement is one of the main disadvantage of Ai, it will replace
translators, researchers etc.
- AI can give biased and discriminatory judgements because it will work
accordingly on the data stored in it and how it is trained.
The era of technology is changing Ai is taking place in every sector, so it is
very high time to adopt new technology. A person using Ai will replace a person
who is not using Ai. To maintain job security, people have to take every
possible step and keep themselves updated. Some people are considering Ai as a
threat because it can take over their job, which may be true because many
companies stopped hiring because Ai is doing their job. No one can predict the
future, no one knows what is going to happen, the only thing which should be
done is to keep ourselves updated and ready to adopt new changes.
Government should take some steps and pass some laws to regulate Ai. Currently
there is no law to regulate Ai in India. AI WILL BE A DANGER IF THERE IS NO LAW
TO REGULATE IT. The European Parliament is the first which passed the Artificial
intelligence Act. It is the world's first comprehensive regulation of Artificial
Indian government should give more attention and pass some laws to protect the
job interest of the individuals. Seminars, workshops and events should be
organized by the Ngo's, Colleges, Universities etc. To make people aware of this
new era of technology. Individuals also take this as a part of their social
responsibility and educate others, most importantly the senior citizens of the
We hope for a good future where everyone lives peacefully without any social
problems, economic problems, health-related problems etc.
