Description

On the cusp of an AI revolution, the legal profession urgently needs to tackle the issues that this raises: from the transparency and trustworthiness of AI, to concerns that AI technology may reflect the biases and prejudices of its developers and trainers, which in turn may lead to skewed results. Navigating these waters as an attorney who uses (or is looking to use) AI requires the new charts and tools that expert legal ethical education provides.

In August 2019, at the urging of its Science & Technology Law Section, the American Bar Association adopted a long-awaited resolution urging courts and lawyers “to address the emerging ethical and legal issues related to the usage of artificial intelligence (“AI”) in the practice of law.”

Join our cutting-edge team of ethical and technological legal experts as they guide you through a discussion of the ethical considerations of using AI for the legal profession with practical examples of how best to ensure you serve your clients better and ethically (!) with AI.
