Is generative AI really coming for us lawyers?

Lawyers are on the brink of extinction, thanks to Allen & Overy’s announcement that they have developed an adapted AI Model that can be used to carry out legal work. Here, Beyond Corporate Partner, James Corlett, looks at what the release of the new generative AI looks like for the legal industry.

Allen & Overy have announced the development of an AI Model that can draft contracts, carry out research tasks and advise them on regulatory issues. Unsurprisingly, the announcement was met by a mixed review in the press. Many of my esteemed colleagues across the legal profession have declared that the end is nigh both for lawyers like myself and essentially the human race in general.
