Brave New World: Lawyer Ethics and AI

Thank you

Thank you for joining us today.

Description

Generative artificial intelligence – the ability of technology to generate creative works that mimic human intelligence – is a growing and potentially dominant reality across industry and the professions, including the legal professions. The idea that software might someday supplant the role of lawyers in certain areas of practice has suddenly become reality with the advent of ChatGPT and other forms of generative AI.

This program explores the forms of generative AI and their potential to supplant certain functions performed by lawyers or paralegals, but also how those tools can be harnessed by lawyers to aid their work.
