The Law society of Hong Kong publishes an issue paper on the use of AI in the legal sector

The Law Society’s Position Paper underscores the pervasive influence of AI on society and acknowledges that it is presenting both challenges and opportunities. Urgency is emphasised, urging proactive collaboration to address challenges and harness opportunities beneficially.

The paper stresses the choice between proactive engagement or passive acceptance of AI’s impact. By issuing this paper, the Law Society aims to enhance understanding of AI’s impact on the legal profession and advocates for coordinated, timely actions and reforms. Stakeholders, including the government, judiciary, and legal educators, are urged to recognise the pressing need for proactive measures to steer the application of AI for the collective benefit of the legal profession.
