The man who wasn't there again: Creative informatics and legal AI

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapter

Abstract / Description of output

As legal AI becomes a viable competitor for human lawyers, concern about technological unemployment is reaching the legal profession. One response is a re-orientation of the value proposition of legal service industry, focussing less on knowledge and analytical reasoning skills to «soft» skills such as creativity. This however makes two problematic assumptions: that creativity is a positive trait of good legal advice, and that it is indeed both beyond machine intelligence. This paper aims to challenge both assumptions.
