Summary 
 
Artificial Intelligence is not a threat but makes life easier especially in 
the legal field. It cannot perform certain high level tasks like writing legal 
briefs, advising clients, making sharp decisions and appearing in 
courts.  It can collate data, aid research and decisions based on data, 
recognize human speech and translate languages. It can also predict 
probable outcomes, tell return on investment, consider agreement or 
arbitration and is thus advantageous to legal firms.

Summary 
 
Artificial Intelligence is not a threat but makes life easier especially in 
the legal field. It cannot perform certain high level tasks like writing legal 
briefs, advising clients, making sharp decisions and appearing in 
courts.  It can collate data, aid research and decisions based on data, 
recognize human speech and translate languages. It can also predict 
probable outcomes, tell return on investment, consider agreement or 
arbitration and is thus advantageous to legal firms.
