It is not long since Open AI released its ChatGPT for use by the public. And now lawyers, educators and legal experts have started to confront the possibilities of what generative artificial intelligence (AI) could mean for the practice of law, currently and in the future.
Unsurprisingly, strong views have been expressed. Some see the technology as an opportunity to bring about radical change in the delivery, accessibility and pricing of legal services. Others are more circumspect, fearing a downward spiral where doubts about the reliability of the output could lead to false confidence in decisions make on the back of these tools.
In this interactive session Professor Suzanne Rab will discuss evolving attitudes towards the use of generative AI including ChatGPT within the legal profession and education of future lawyers drawing on her experience as a technology law barrister, Professor of law and self-confessed technology geek.
Suzanne will be joined by Katie Curry, Partner at RBB Economics to discuss the advantages and limitations of generative AI, and its potential for academic institutions. Katie has twenty years’ experience working as a competition economist across a broad range of matters including mergers, litigation, Competition Act investigations and market studies. A former Economics Director at Ofcom, she has significant regulatory expertise and a deep understanding of telecoms and digital markets.
The session will be of interest to:
- Lawyers seeking a greater understanding of what is generative AI and the risks and opportunities it presents for legal practice.
- Educators and academic institutions considering how generative AI may both liberate and present challenges for legal education.
- Law school students and lawyers of the future wanting to explore the potential as well as the limitations of generative AI.
