Artificial Intelligence's (AI’s) growing impact on institutions, economies, and individual lives calls for a careful analysis of how AI interacts with the current legal systems. With an emphasis on a global perspective, the current study intended to provide a critical analysis of the intersection of AI technology and the law. The disparities in AI rules and ethical principles among jurisdictions create both opportunities and problems for global governance, inspiring this endeavor. The current study compared legal frameworks, economic interests, and cultural values of the United States, the European Union, China, Pakistan, India, and Bangladesh to draw a clearer picture of the varied terrain of AI governance. The United States takes a sectoral strategy, with a focus on rules for certain industries, whereas the European Union uses a more cohesive, ethical approach, as seen in its General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR). While the United States pursues a more laissez-faire approach, China pursues a more government-led agenda that mixes regulatory monitoring with market-driven innovation. Although, their legal landscapes are changing quickly, Pakistan, India, and Bangladesh are still in the early stages of developing a comprehensive AI strategy. In its final section, the current study calls for a global discussion on how to regulate AI responsibly and create uniform regulations that can handle the myriad ethical and legal implications of AI.
