World’s First Robot Lawyer Sued For Practising Without A License

The world’s first robot lawyer has been sued by a law firm for practising without a license.

The robo-lawyer, created by California-based tech company DoNotPay, has been dubbed “the world’s first robot lawyer.”

The chatbot-style robo-lawyer was created with hopes to help “millions of consumers solve their problems.”

However, Chicago-based firm Edelson claimed that the service is “unlawful”.

“Unfortunately for its customers, DoNotPay is not actually a robot, a lawyer, nor a law firm. DoNotPay does not have a law degree, is not barred in any jurisdiction, and is not supervised by any lawyer,” Edelson said in the official file.

The utilization of artificial intelligence (AI) in the criminal justice system is swiftly expanding around the world. But Malaysian lawyers are now outraged over use of AI in courts.
