For a Lawyer, Time is money. It is the currency with which others signify value for his efforts.. AI saves you from doing the ever so surfaced monotonous work in our field. As Pakistan’s Lawyers , Artificial intelligence holds the key for good time management by leveraging automation, reducing stress and improving productivity are a given.
AI has begun a revolution in legal practice and the wider global legal industry is making great strides towards efficiency and work life autonomy, due to their early adoption of it. Whereas, Pakistan’s approach towards artificial intelligence has been left wanting .I am reminded of quote once uttered at a seminar by a Member of the American Intelligence Community, while referring to a conversation between General Mattis and himself ; The general was adamant “we have the best weapons , no one will dare to challenge us in a conventional war again for a century”, where the American Spy retorted “That’s why we must focus on the frontier of AI”. It is the greatest enabler of mankind thus far, enables one to do more with less.
Gone is the era of lugging around a briefcase (say nothing about client privacy rights), the drudgery of heading to the law firm, meetings then court and back. In this era, cloud is king. And every lawyer , partner & associate needs a digital briefcase. It is no longer a viable option to continue with the familiar old ways of doing things.
