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.

Ongoing digitalisation trends in every other sector also push the legal sector to become faster, more agile and user-oriented. Changes coming from different places have a strong impact on legal systems to change. Turkish legal professionals have also been feeling this trend and pressures as well. However, the legal tech market is still immature and slowly developing in Turkey. Let’s take a look together at what’s going on in Turkey.

Join us on an exploration of the Central and Eastern European legal tech and innovation scene. With this post, we are heading to the Balkans – Pristina, the capital of Kosovo, precisely.
Kristiana Filip talks with a fellow legal innovator, Alban Krasniqi, about his mission, inspiration and his professional journey to date. You’ll find about the legal search engine, Lexdok, that Alban is developing and what makes CEE a tech-responsive corner of the world.

I am talking, of course, about technological and organisational transformation. Still, is it something real in Central and Eastern Europe (“CEE”) and, more importantly, should legal professionals be mindful of it? To put it shortly: YES.
Changing paradigms poses significant challenges especially in industries with more traditional mindsets such as the CEE legal one. The resistance towards innovation manifested by legal professionals here can be traced back to the nature of both law and legal industry. First, law is branded as a human science, for and about social interaction; I will further detail on the accuracy of this assertion. Second, for centuries now, lawyers have had absolute monopoly over providing and delivering legal services, which in turn eliminated any significant form of stimulation or constraint for the professionals to be agents of change. Change is upon this industry, whether the practitioners like it or not. At this stage, the only control they can exert is over the solutions to adopt in order to survive and thrive under these new circumstances. There is a myriad of options out there but what currently seems best fit for CEE would be professional upskilling and a change in the working methods.
