Foremost legaltech company, LawPavilion Business Solutions Limited, has unveiled two Artificial Intelligence (AI) enabled products, Prime GPT and Primsol GPT that have the potential to revolutionise Nigeria’s legal landscape.
The MD/CEO of LawPavilion, Mr. Ope Olugasa at the weekend in Lagos, explained the urgent need for the Nigerian legal system to embrace AI, saying it has become inevitable to adopt it in legal practice.
According to him, as technology evolves rapidly, with generative AI raising the bar in industries, individuals and companies that want to stay ahead of the curve must adopt those AI tools for transformative services.
Drawing a parallel to the remarkable growth witnessed in Nigeria’s banking sector through fintech innovations, he illuminated the potential that can be unlocked when technology is harnessed effectively in the legal system.
Consequently, Olugasa announced that LawPavilion will launch Prime GPT and Primsol GPT, the two revolutionary AI-driven platforms, which will redefine legal drafting and advocacy at the coming NBA conference in Abuja.
He asserted that the embrace of AI will create unparalleled opportunities to get things right in the justice sector, adding that the tools are developed in phases to encompass lawyers, judges and citizens.
Olugasa posited that LawPavilion is poised to spearhead this transformative revolution in the legal landscape through PrimeGPT and PrimsolGPT – the groundbreaking AI solutions, meticulously crafted to empower legal professionals with comprehensive insights, expediting decision-making, enhancing efficiency, and elevating precision in their advocacy and legal research.
He said: “With the incorporation of generative AI GPT into our trusted legal research tools -Prime and Primsol, lawyers do not have to lose a case again on the grounds of technicality.”
Expounding on the innovative products, Damilola Ibikunle, the head of Digital Transformation Unit at LawPavilion said: “Prime GPT and Primsol GPT transcend mere products; they stand as embodiments of innovation and a resolute commitment to empowering legal practitioners with tools that elevate their practice to unparalleled heights.
“These state-of-the-art offerings harness the formidable potential of AI and advanced algorithms, revolutionising the landscape of legal research. They illuminate the path to accuracy, efficiency, and profound insight within the intricate domain of legal research.”
In a demonstration of Prime GPT and Primsol PT’s operational mechanics, Olalekan Sogbein, head of Products at LawPavilion, explained how legal practitioners can seamlessly input their case summaries into these platforms and get immediate results.
“In mere seconds, the generative AI delves into the vast reservoir of LawPavilion’s legal database, extracting pivotal insights encompassing jurisdiction, subject matter, mode of commencement, and issues for determination with possible legal arguments and authorities to support the issues.
“This streamlined process empowers legal professionals with a rock-solid foundation for crafting compelling legal briefs and arguments that stand resolute in the face of complexity,” Sogbein declared.
In response to the inquiry regarding the potential job displacement of lawyers, Olugasa said AI will not replace lawyers, but will liberate them from mundane tasks, allowing them to focus on more cerebral and value-driven activities.
He affirmed that both Prime GPT and Primsol GPT are meticulously designed to empower lawyers to accomplish more within less time, expanding their capabilities to efficiently handle multiple briefs.
Arguing that the arduous preliminary research that would consume days can now be concluded in a matter of minutes, Olugasa stressed that leveraging on AI such as Prime GPT and Primsol GPT will give lawyers the needed propeller to launch into the league of the globally sought-after legal practitioners.
Responding to inquiries about whether the tools will facilitate the input of briefs to predict case outcomes, Olugasa said the organization is exploring the possibility of adding such features in the second phase of Prime GPT and Primsol GPT, assuring that the second phase will be launched in a matter of months.
Addressing concerns about the accuracy of the tools, particularly in light of AI’s occasional inaccuracies, Olugasa stated that PrimeGPT and Primsol GPT were specifically developed for lawyers to leverage legal data from LawPavilion’s extensive legal resources.
He, however, emphasized the need for due diligence by lawyers using the tools, as AI is only meant to enhance their work, and not replace humans.
