(Scene: Harvey Specter and Louis Litt standing in the courtroom, ready to engage in a heated debate.)
Harvey Specter: (with a confident smile) “Ladies and gentlemen, let’s get one thing straight. We live in a world where technology is advancing at a rapid pace, and we have to adapt or be left behind. Just like how I beat you, Louis, every time we step into this courtroom.”
Louis Litt: (with a scowl) “Harvey, this isn’t one of your classic rock concerts where you can just turn up the volume and drown out the opposition. The legal system is built on years of tradition and expertise. You can’t replace that with some fancy AI.”
Harvey: (leaning back and putting his hands in his pockets) “You see, Louis, that’s where you’re wrong. AI has the capability to revolutionize the legal industry, just like how I revolutionized Pearson Specter. Remember that time when I brought in that major client, and you said it couldn’t be done?”
Louis: (crossing his arms) “Harvey, bringing in a client is one thing. But we’re talking about people’s lives here. The law is complex and nuanced, and you need a human touch to navigate through it. AI is just too impersonal.”
Harvey: (leaning in) “But that’s the beauty of it, Louis. AI can process vast amounts of data in a fraction of the time it would take a human. It can provide accurate and personalized legal advice based on the individual’s unique situation. It’s like having a Mike Ross in your pocket.”
Louis: (pointing at Harvey) “Don’t you dare bring Mike into this! He may have been a fraud, but he had something that AI will never have – a heart. A machine can’t empathize with a client or understand the emotional nuances of a case.”
Harvey: (smirking) “Louis, I hate to break it to you, but the law isn’t about emotions. It’s about facts, and AI can handle facts better than any human ever could. Besides, think of the access to justice it would provide. People who can’t afford a lawyer could represent themselves with the help of AI.”
Louis: (pausing and then shaking his head) “Harvey, you’re missing the point. The law is about more than just facts. It’s about justice, and justice requires a human touch. AI can’t provide that.”
Harvey: (leaning in and looking Louis in the eyes) “Louis, I’ve beaten you countless times in this courtroom, and I’m going to beat you again today. The fact is, AI has the potential to level the playing field and make legal representation accessible to everyone. And if there’s one thing I believe in, it’s justice for all.”
(Scene ends with Harvey’s confident smirk and Louis scowling in frustration.)
So what do you think? Should AI be part of law? Should consumers be able to use AI to create documents and represent themselves in court?
If you were on the jury would you side with Harvey or Louis?
