AI-Assisted Retrieval of Info from LLMs
NextLaw.pro provides an informational retrieval service about what information and analysis are available in or generated by AI and LLM.
By your use, you accept these Terms and Conditions.
Summary of Terms and Conditions. NextLaw.pro provides an informational retrieval service about information and analyses that are available in or generated by artificial intelligence (AI) and large language models (LLM). This platform is intended for general informational purposes only and does not constitute legal advice or legal research.
By using this service, you acknowledge and agree that NextLaw.pro is not engaged in the practice of law and does not provide legal advice. The information obtained through Nextlaw.pro is not and should not be considered a substitute for professional legal advice, and you should consult with a qualified legal professional for specific legal matters.
NextLaw.pro does not guarantee the accuracy, completeness, or reliability of the information retrieved, generated, or transmitted by this service. The information available in and generated by AI, an LLM and provided by this service typically is derived from multiple public sources and may be inaccurate, incorrect, misleading, false, or outdated. As one example, much or all of the LLM information available on or generated with this platform was prepared in 2021 and may not reflect current authority, facts, or developments.
What Large Language Models do
When large language models, like GPT-3 or GPT-4, respond to legal questions, they don’t “think” or “understand” content as humans do. Instead, they generate responses based on patterns in the data they were trained on. Here’s a more detailed view of what happens when you ask a legal question:
- Interpreting the Query: The model parses the question, identifying key terms, context, and the nature of the query. This process is based on the model’s training, which includes exposure to countless text samples that help it understand the structure of the language and common patterns within legal contexts.
- Generating a Response: Using the patterns it has learned from the training data, the model predicts the most likely sequence of words to follow the input query in a way that is grammatically coherent and contextually relevant to the provided prompt. The response is generated word by word, with each new word being selected based on its probability to follow the previous sequence of words, until the model determines that the response is complete.
- Reliance on Training Data: The quality of the response heavily depends on the breadth and quality of the training data. If the model has been trained on extensive legal texts, it’s more likely to produce a relevant and accurate answer. However, because the model generates responses based on the input and what it “thinks” is the most likely continuation, it can sometimes produce inaccurate or misleading information, especially for complex or niche legal topics.
- No True Understanding or Reasoning: It’s important to note that while the model can generate responses that sound logical and knowledgeable, it doesn’t truly “understand” the content or the implications of the advice it provides. It doesn’t reason like a human lawyer; it mimics patterns of reasoning it learned during training.
- Lack of Current and Specific Knowledge: Large language models can’t access or retrieve information beyond their training data. This means they can’t pull the latest legal statutes or case law, nor can they provide insights into ongoing court cases unless this information was included in their training data up to the last update.
- Ethical and Practical Considerations: There are significant ethical considerations when using AI for legal advice. Misinterpretations or inaccuracies in legal matters can have serious consequences. Therefore, it’s recommended that individuals seek advice from qualified legal professionals. Additionally, privacy is a concern, as sensitive information shared with the model could potentially be accessed by others, depending on the platform’s data security measures.
In summary, while large language models can generate responses to legal questions based on patterns they’ve learned during training, they don’t actually “know” the law or understand the nuances of legal practice. They should not be used as a substitute for professional legal advice. Their role might be best suited to providing general information on legal topics, assisting with legal research by pointing to potentially relevant statutes or case law, or helping draft routine documents under the supervision of legal professionals.

YOU A AGREE TO THE FOLLOWING MANDATORY ARBITRATION AND CLASS ACTION WAIVER PROVISIONS:
MANDATORY ARBITRATION. You agree to resolve any claims arising out of or relating to these Terms or our Services, regardless of when the claim arose, even if it was before these Terms existed (a “Dispute”), through final and binding arbitration. You may opt out of arbitration within 30 days of account creation or of any updates to these arbitration terms within 30 days after the update has taken effect by sending a contact email to Nextlaw.pro. If you opt out of an update, the last set of agreed upon arbitration terms will apply.
Informal Dispute Resolution. We would like to understand and try to address your concerns prior to formal legal action. Before either of us files a claim against the other, we both agree to try to resolve the Dispute informally. You agree to do so by sending us notice to Nextlaw.pro. We will do so by sending you notice to the email address associated with your account. If we are unable to resolve a Dispute within 60 days, either of us has the right to initiate arbitration. We also both agree to attend an individual settlement conference if either party requests one during this time. Any statute of limitations will be tolled during this informal resolution process.
Arbitration Forum. If we are unable to resolve the Dispute, either of us may commence arbitration with National Arbitration and Mediation (“NAM”) under its Comprehensive Dispute Resolution Rules and Procedures and/or Supplemental Rules for Mass Arbitration Filings, as applicable. We will not seek attorneys’ fees and costs in arbitration unless the arbitrator determines that your claim is frivolous. The activities described in these Terms involve interstate commerce and the Federal Arbitration Act will govern the interpretation and enforcement of these arbitration terms and any arbitration.
Arbitration Procedures. The arbitration will be conducted by videoconference if possible, but if the arbitrator determines a hearing should be conducted in person, the location will be mutually agreed upon, in the county where you reside, or as determined by the arbitrator, unless the batch arbitration process applies. The arbitration will be conducted by a sole arbitrator. The arbitrator will be either a retired judge or an attorney licensed to practice law in the state of California. The arbitrator will have exclusive authority to resolve any Dispute, except the state or federal courts of San Francisco, California have the authority to determine any Dispute about enforceability, validity of the class action waiver, or requests for public injunctive relief, as set out below. Any settlement offer amounts will not be disclosed to the arbitrator by either party until after the arbitrator determines the final award, if any. The arbitrator has the authority to grant motions dispositive of all or part of any Dispute.
Exceptions. This section does not require informal dispute resolution or arbitration of the following claims: (i) individual claims brought in small claims court; and (ii) injunctive or other equitable relief to stop unauthorized use or abuse of the Services or intellectual property infringement or misappropriation.
CLASS AND JURY TRIAL WAIVERS. You agree that Disputes must be brought on an individual basis only, and may not be brought as a plaintiff or class member in any purported class, consolidated, or representative proceeding. Class arbitrations, class actions, and representative actions are prohibited. Only individual relief is available. The parties agree to sever and litigate in court any request for public injunctive relief after completing arbitration for the underlying claim and all other claims. This does not prevent either party from participating in a class-wide settlement. Youknowingly and irrevocably waive any right to trial by jury in any action, proceeding, or counterclaim.
Arbitration Agreement and Waiver of Certain Rights
a) Mandatory Arbitration: You and Nextlaw.pro, its employees, affiliates or agents, agree that any and all disputes or claims that have arisen or may arise between you and the Company, including without limitation federal and state statutory claims, common law claims, and those based in contract, tort, fraud, misrepresentation, or any other legal theory, shall be resolved exclusively through final and binding arbitration, rather than a court, in accordance with the terms of this Arbitration Agreement, except you may assert individual claims in small claims court, if your claims qualify. The Federal Arbitration Act governs the interpretation and enforcement of this Arbitration Agreement.
b) Prohibition of Class and Representative Actions and Non-Individualized Relief: YOU AND THE COMPANY AGREE THAT EACH OF US MAY BRING CLAIMS AGAINST THE OTHER ONLY ON AN INDIVIDUAL BASIS AND NOT AS A PLAINTIFF OR CLASS MEMBER IN ANY PURPORTED CLASS OR REPRESENTATIVE ACTION OR PROCEEDING. UNLESS BOTH YOU AND THE COMPANY AGREE OTHERWISE, THE ARBITRATOR MAY NOT CONSOLIDATE OR JOIN MORE THAN ONE PERSON’S OR PARTY’S CLAIMS AND MAY NOT OTHERWISE PRESIDE OVER ANY FORM OF A CONSOLIDATED, REPRESENTATIVE, OR CLASS PROCEEDING. ALSO, THE ARBITRATOR MAY AWARD RELIEF (INCLUDING MONETARY, INJUNCTIVE, AND DECLARATORY RELIEF) ONLY IN FAVOR OF THE INDIVIDUAL PARTY SEEKING RELIEF AND ONLY TO THE EXTENT NECESSARY TO PROVIDE RELIEF NECESSITATED BY THAT PARTY’S INDIVIDUAL CLAIM(S).
Batch Arbitration. If 25 or more claimants represented by the same or similar counsel file demands for arbitration raising substantially similar Disputes within 90 days of each other, then you and OpenAI agree that NAM will administer them in batches of up to 50 claimants each (“Batch”), unless there are less than 50 claimants in total or after batching, which will comprise a single Batch. NAM will administer each Batch as a single consolidated arbitration with one arbitrator, one set of arbitration fees, and one hearing held by videoconference or in a location decided by the arbitrator for each Batch. If any part of this section is found to be invalid or unenforceable as to a particular claimant or Batch, it will be severed and arbitrated in individual proceedings.
Severability. If any part of these arbitration terms is found to be illegal or unenforceable, the remainder will remain in effect, except that if a finding of partial illegality or unenforceability would allow class arbitration, class action, or representative action, this entire dispute resolution section will be unenforceable in its entirety.
