Abstract: Artificial intelligence (AI) has improved tremendously in the previous decade, and a wide range of sectors have begun utilising AI systems in their daily operations (Carrel, 2019). AI is changing the profession of law and legal education. The use of sophisticated AI systems may improve legal services and increase access to justice (Surden, 2019). Law and legal education are impacted by developing technologies. Legal education is changing. Educators must design a curriculum to teach law students to integrate new technology in education and the profession (Rissland, 1990). Technology is boosting legal practise. Lawyers need legal research. Lawyers must constantly research legal concerns. Lawyers often conduct research, although goals and methods vary. AI's impact on the legal industry can be quantified by legal research. Legal AI is revolutionising the legal profession. Educators must prepare pupils for these changes. National and international policy planning is vital (Hutchinson, 2006). Today's legal education lacks technology and innovation, according to the report. This essay examines how AI affects legal education and pedagogy.
