Changing the legal industry is typically something that takes decades or more of time. But the proliferation of AI tools in daily life and business settings is set to change all that. Many were concerned about job-stealing robots years ago, but it has taken some time for AI to evolve into more useful and practical tools that even the most ardent Luddite lawyer could understand and use on a day-to-day basis. Like it or not, AI tools are here to stay, and lawyers who “don’t do technology” might be left holding the short end of the stick. When everyone is at a meeting using their AI tricorder to process information and pull up relevant insights in real-time, do not be surprised that you’re not given a break to head back to your desk to delegate a research task to a staff attorney. Life comes at you fast, and with AI “fast” is being redefined every day.
“Artificial intelligence has erupted in the last few months with software like ChatGPT gaining widespread popularity. However, AI is nothing new. Paul Roetzer, the founder and CEO of Marketing AI Institute, has been working with AI for more than a decade and been a consultant for hundreds of organizations, from startups to Fortune 500 companies. Paul is also a world-renowned speaker and the author of “Marketing Artificial Intelligence.” Paul had a few minutes this month while on a cross-country flight to a speaking engagement to field some questions on how AI can make lawyers more efficient — or harm their practice.”
