Tomorrow, I will be at the ABA National Conference on Professional Responsibility in Louisville, Ky., where I will be moderating the plenary session, “Ethics Issues in Lawyers’ Use of Artificial Intelligence.”

Here is the program description:

If machine capabilities allow us to diminish, or even remove, human participation from some tasks traditionally involved in the practice of law, or to exchange nonlawyer providers for lawyer providers for entire segments of service previously performed by lawyers, what roles will lawyers play, and how will the changes affect the delivery of legal services in the future? In turn, how do these changes affect how we analyze and manage the ethical accountability and client protections associated with both lawyer and non-lawyer provided tasks and services?

A panel that includes several lawyers working for businesses that are creating and expanding those very machine capabilities will discuss those questions with the practicing ethics lawyers – on the panel and in the audience – who advise other lawyers about analyzing and managing lawyers’ ethical and legal accountability.

Panelists will be:

If you are attending the conference, I look forward to seeing you there.
