I played around on it yesterday and asked it to draft a memorandum on a motion to compel further answers. It was not good, and didn’t make me worried that we would be replaced by AI anytime soon.

I hope it improves with adding case law and detailed arguments. Can become very useful for the future. Mayne even calculating chances of winning a case or even an argument by looking through previous filings?

The same way typewriters and computers have made the scrivener obsolete, I think technology will continue to erode the sheer manpower needed to dispose of a case. However, I think there will still be significant human contribution so long as we use an adversarial legal system.

Legal language was only incidentally included in its training set, so it’s going to be pretty bad. If fine-tuned using legal documents, it might get better. Nobody’s job is at risk any time soon. Besides, I think most people would rather start from good a precedent or form than roll the dice with a model that produces uncertain strings of hopefully-related concepts.

It’s horrible. I’d never use it let alone for an actual legal document.

Went back on to Chat GPT and it’s not doing legal work anymore :(

I recently lateraled (3rd hear) into a biglaw firm from a clerkship just before the start of the fiscal year (Oct. 1). I’ve been out on a few matters and have worked on some clients, but this will be the second month in a row I’ve billed under 150 hours/month. I’ve been told by partners and associates to enjoy the lull but I can’t help but feel like I’m not being productive. I also feel like if I ask the partner or seniors for more work again it will genuinely annoy them. What should I do?
