Robert A. Clifford, founder and senior partner at Clifford Law Offices, authored an article for Chicago Lawyer Magazine, titled, “Regulating AI for the Law,” which discusses the implications of using artificial intelligence within various legal scenarios including brief writing, jury selection, and law school application materials.
“AI apparently is revolutionizing the legal profession by providing tools that assist lawyers in research, drafting, and decision-making. The sophisticated data mining already is used by consultants in the jury selection process, but does that consider life’s experiences, attitudes, and beliefs?”
– Robert A. Clifford, founder and senior partner at Clifford Law Offices
