It sounds like sci-fi, but artificial intelligence (AI) is already used in various legal capacities. For example, in bail and parole hearings in some U.S. jurisdictions, an algorithm informs judges of an accused's or prisoner's likelihood of flight or reoffending. The defence in these states has challenged the seeming lack of transparency and inherent biases of such systems—unsuccessfully. Some companies employ AI for dispute resolution, while corporate reliance on AI may lead to a new breed of litigation, not to mention the advent of driverless cars. We are on the precipice of change in civil litigation. Are you ready?
