There’s an old saying that goes, “You’re entitled to all the justice you can afford.”
Although it’s usually said with levity as a tongue-in-cheek commentary on the expense of hiring lawyers, sadly, legal services are far too expensive for many to afford, especially those who often need them the most. It’s far easier to rip off, take advantage of, or otherwise marginalize people who can’t afford to fight back.
But could AI be changing that? Could AI do to law what Uber did to taxis? What Amazon did to bookstores?
