This paper explores the multifaceted influence of Artificial Intelligence (AI) on legal decision making, delving into its ethical, jurisprudential, and societal ramifications. With the rapid advancement of AI technologies, their integration into legal systems has become increasingly prevalent, raising critical questions regarding their impact on justice, fairness, and human autonomy. Through an interdisciplinary lens, this study scrutinizes the complexities surrounding AI's role in legal contexts, shedding light on both its promises and perils. The ethical dimensions of AI in legal decision-making form a central focus of this inquiry. By examining principles such as transparency, accountability, and bias mitigation, this paper elucidates the ethical imperatives inherent in deploying AI systems within judicial frameworks. Moreover, it investigates the ethical dilemmas arising from AI's capacity to autonomously render legal judgments, challenging traditional conceptions of moral agency and responsibility. In parallel, this research elucidates the jurisprudential implications of AI's involvement in legal decision-making. By analyzing its impact on legal reasoning, precedent, and the nature of judicial interpretation, this study assesses how AI augments, complicates, or disrupts established jurisprudential paradigms. Furthermore, it evaluates the potential transformation of legal standards and doctrines in response to the integration of AI technologies, probing the evolving dynamics of legal jurisprudence. Beyond the confines of legal theory, this paper investigates the broader societal consequences of AI-driven legal decision-making. It explores issues pertaining to access to justice, equity, and the democratization of legal processes in an era characterized by technological innovation. Additionally, it examines the societal implications of algorithmic decision-making in perpetuating or mitigating existing disparities within legal systems. Through a comprehensive analysis of these interrelated dimensions, this study offers insights into the intricate interplay between AI and legal decision-making, illuminating the ethical, jurisprudential, and societal challenges and opportunities inherent in this transformative phenomenon.
