If you haven’t played around with OpenAI’s ChatGPT by now, you’re likely in a rapidly decreasing minority. ChatGPT has officially set the record for fastest-growing user base of any online technology, reaching 100 million monthly active users in January 2023 (by comparison, it took TikTok, the previous record-holder, approximately nine months to get there). That works out to roughly 13 million unique users per day last month.

People are using ChatGPT for nearly every purpose imaginable. The legal tech industry has also gotten in on the frenzy, though these applications are using the GPT-3 AI models that underlay ChatGPT, rather than the actual chatbot itself, which is often improperly cited as being what’s powering the emerging tools for legal.
