The study aims to evaluate the extent to which ChatGPT can potentially serve as a useful supplementary resource to enhance understanding of legal concepts and provide quick responses and straightforward answers to basic legal questions. The results also revealed the benefits and drawbacks of ChatGPT. It identifies legal strategies, drafts a summary of judgement, generates a skeleton argument, and provides simple legal advice. Limitations include a lack of understanding of natural language and an inability to handle complex issues. It was evidenced by a recent incident where two lawyers relied on it for legal research and were guilty of using the Al model to submit non-existent judicial opinions with fake citations. ChatGPT may transform the study of law in both positive and negative ways. There is a need to find ways to adapt to these developments because resistance is futile.
