Today, some lawyers also use AI to automate routine tasks such as contract review, research, and generative legal writing.

Although the use of AI for legal professionals can give attorneys more time to focus on strategic planning and case analyses, the technology also introduces challenges, including bias, discrimination, and privacy concerns. So, while there are real benefits of AI in law, these risks have also led to skepticism among some legal professionals and left them wary of the rapidly evolving technology. Even with these challenges, AI is already disrupting the legal field in several ways.
