If you thought we wouldn’t take an interview with ChatGPT and ask for an opinion on its role in legal innovation, you are wrong. Because we absolutely did.
And it was “kind” enough to deliver some useful insights.

One of the hottest topics as of late is ChatGPT. And we just had to look into it through the legal tech lenses.
Confused by all the noise around it?
We’re here to help. Here are three takeaways:
1. ChatGPT uses words and structures found on the Internet and fed by humans during the training process to form sentences. It does that by calculating the probability of certain words following others and/or creating constructs with one another. This is a pure probability/statistical test.
2. GPT training does not create an imperative for the system to limit itself to pure facts: it is instructed to be a creative text generator. It still needs human supervision.
3. But the most significant problem so far is the lack of transparency regarding how Machine Learning systems, including ChatGPT, actually work. There is no backdoor to the results.
ChatGPT can add value to the legal industry through chatbots, text recommendations for legal documents, document reviews, etc.
But legal professionals can be at ease: their jobs are safe…for now.

European Legal Technology Association (ELTA) and Legal Design Turkey started a pro bono project called Project Octolex. The goal of the project is to create a global directory of legal technology use cases where the legal tech tool is used for an ESG issue. This niche directory will serve as a source for those who would like to learn more about how legal technology can be used to mitigate ESG risks with legal tech tools. Learn more about the project, what ESG refers to and why does it matter.

Legal professionals are usually more conservative and don’t like changes. There is a reasonable explanation for this – they need something that works 100% of the time and don’t want to take any chances. Legal consulting is highly responsible, and even the smallest mistakes can cause significant damages.
But things have changed. New technologies are more reliable than ever, and not using them practically makes lawyers and other legal professionals lose a lot of money.
Can you do the work without legal technologies? Of course. Should you? Definitely not. This article analyses the reasons why you should use legal technologies.
