In a new study, University of Minnesota law professors used ChatGPT AI chatbot to answer graduate exams at four courses in their school. The AI passed all four, but with an average grade of C+. The University of Minnesota group noted ChatGPT was good at addressing “basic legal rules” and summaries, but it floundered when trying to pinpoint issues relevant in a case.

When faced with business management questions in a different study, the generator was “amazing” with simple operations management and process analysis questions, but it couldn’t handle advanced process questions. It even made mistakes with sixth-grade-level math – something other AI authors have struggled with.
If you’re unsure whether we’re ready for robot lawyers, you’re not the only one. DoNotPay is a free AI-powered chatbot that can draft letters and fill out forms for various legal matters, including appeals for parking tickets. Joshua Browder, the CEO of the New York startup, announced his company’s bot would represent a defendant fighting a traffic ticket in the courtroom on February 22nd.

However, he received multiple jail threats from state bar prosecutors if he was to go through with his plan. DoNotPay is postponing its court case. Browder told NPR “The truth is most people can’t afford lawyers. This could’ve shifted the balance and allowed people to use tools like ChatGPT in the courtroom that maybe could’ve helped them win cases.”
