Generative AI is a powerful technology that has the potential to transform multiple industries, including the legal industry. AI enables lawyers and legal firms more productive and spend more time on complex issues requiring human judgment and expertise. Generative AI is all set to Transform legal practices, process for legal firms and make legal enterprises more Agile and effective.
While most of the industries and corporate departments have experienced substantial transformation, the legal field has largely retained its traditional approach. This is because legal data is often complex and unstructured. Leveraging Generative AI can help lawyers and law firms create, research, analyse, filter and organize legal documents more quickly and accurately, which can save a lot of time and money. A recent survey found that 67% of in-house attorneys at fast-growth companies felt buried in low-value work. The legal profession is ripe for disruption, and generative AI has the potential to revolutionize the way legal teams work.
Understanding Generative AI
One form of generative AI is a Large Language Model (LLM), which is a neural network trained on extensive datasets from the internet and other sources. It generates responses based on inferences drawn from the statistical patterns it has learned during its training. ChatGPT, Google’s BARD, LLaMA, Claude are popular examples of LLMs. The model can process prompts at a speed, volume and accuracy that outranks average human capability.
Three prominent companies known for their work on Generative AI and Large Language Models (LLMs) are:
- OpenAI: Known for developing advanced AI models, including GPT (Generative Pre-trained Transformer) series, such as GPT-3 and GPT-4, which are among the most sophisticated LLMs available.
- Google: Their AI research division has been working on various AI technologies, including LLMs. Google’s BERT (Bidirectional Encoder Representations from Transformers) and more recently, LaMDA (Language Model for Dialogue Applications), are notable contributions in this field.
- Facebook AI Research (FAIR): As part of Meta Platforms (formerly Facebook), FAIR has been involved in developing large-scale AI models. They have contributed to the field with various models, focusing on understanding and generating human language.
Others ket players include Microsoft, Google, NVIDIA and IBM.
In other words, LLMs possess two key abilities:
LLMs can generate coherent, human-like text by predicting the next word or sequence of words based on the previous context.
LLMs can also “understand” the meaning of text by building representations of the semantic content.
Generative AI in the Legal Industry
Generative AI solutions have potential to transform the legal industry by automating tasks that are error prone, time-consuming and are repetitive in nature. According to a report by Goldman Sachs, 44% of legal work could be automated by AI especially those involving the examination of tedious documents.
A survey conducted by a leading research firm showed that 89% of surveyed lawyers are not only aware of generative AI tools like ChatGPT but also 41% have already employed them for various purposes. This awareness far outpaces that of the public, where only 61% have heard of generative AI, despite similar usage rates.
However, there is a significant cybersecurity and data privacy risks associated with uploading sensitive data online. The data shared with GPT tools available online can potentially compromise data confidentiality. To address this issue, offline and company-specific generative AI solutions like SCIKIQ’s become crucial for ensuring data security and privacy.
According to precedence research report, 2022, The global generative AI in legal market size was valued at USD 52.27 million in 2022 and it is expected to reach around USD 781.55 million by 2032, growing at a CAGR of 31.06% during the forecast period from 2023 to 2032.
Segmental Insights: Notable growth is anticipated in the onpremises deployment model, document review application, and law firms as endusers, underscoring key areas to watch for market development.
The automation’s capabilities will help legal firms and in-house legal departments to enhance productivity, allowing employees to redirect their attention to the strategic and intricate facets of their work.
