The risks of integrating AI into the practice of law are important to consider. It requires answering complex questions around bias, transparency, defensibility, and more. But, on the other side of the conversation, there’s an equally important question worth pondering over: If AI does indeed demonstrably enhance the competence of legal representation, could it then be unethical not to use AI? Join us for what is sure to be an exciting discussion featuring some of the most interesting voices at the intersection of AI and the law.
