ChatGPT and Generative AI Legal Research Guide

ChatGPT Use Example: Conducting Legal Research and Applying Law to Facts

ChatGPT can be a valuable starting point for analyzing fact patterns and applying law to facts IF you keep in mind that all information and analysis must be verified, just like any other information you find on the internet or anywhere else.

Note: Remember that ChatGPT is actually much better at producing a draft answer to legal questions than correctly indentifying the primary legal materials it uses to answer them.

Here are just a few examples of ways to use ChatGPT:

  • To analyzing a fact pattern and applying law to the facts
  • To responding to a legal argument from a brief
  • To answer a bar exam question

Examples of ChatGPT prompts and responses are given below.
