Navigating the Uncanny Valley | Ethical Considerations for the Use of Artificial Intelligence in Law Practice

Event Description


Artificial intelligence carries with it a great deal of promise, for humanity as well as for the practice of law. Of course, that is mixed with equal parts danger, for humanity – as well as for the practice of law. For lawyers, in particular, it’s important to consider professional ethics, and how those rules affect how attorneys can and should use artificial intelligence.
In this CLE program, we’ll address the many ethical issues that arise when lawyers use AI, including the logistical questions. Artificial intelligence can be an assistive technology for attorneys, that can improve the way that lawyers do their jobs, but only so long as those lawyers are using the technology in a way that is protective of client information, and that actually serves the end goal of providing zealous representation to law firm clients.
In what promises to be a lively discussion, we’ll cover a number of issues around the ethical use of AI – and, we’ll take your questions, to boot!
Topics to be addressed include:

     - AI + lawyer competency
     - Vetting AI tools
     - Using AI tools in a way that protects client confidentiality
     - IP + copyright issues related to AI
     - Disclosure of the use of AI tools
     - The future of AI + legal ethics
