A Call to Arms: Why and How Lawyers and Law Schools Should Embrace Artificial IntelligenceUniversity of Toledo Law Review (2019)
This article will evaluate the impact emerging AI technology has on the practice of law, in particular in the areas of legal research, “search and find” services, form automation and creation, and predictive analytics. It will discuss the impact emerging AI technology has had on legal education and what some law schools are doing to prepare students to be competitive and succeed in this rapidly evolving legal environment. Lastly, the author argues that legal education must attempt to bridge the law-tech divide and become ground zero for innovation and change. It is clear further discussions are needed, and legal educators need to come together, evaluate current law school curriculum, and brainstorm as to how to improve upon current pedagogical practices.
