The 2023 Pitblado Lectures: Artificial Intelligence in Legal Practice
Date: November 16 Attendance: In-person Venue: Robson Hall, Faculty of Law, University of Manitoba
We are thrilled to announce that our partners at the University of Manitoba, Faculty of Law are hosting this year’s event at Robson Hall, marking a return to in-person learning after an extended hiatus.
Artificial Intelligence in Legal Practice: Risks, Rewards and Responsibilities
We’ve gone from snail mail to email. From case law reporters in the library stacks to keyword searches in online databases. There is no doubt that technology has transformed the way we practice law. Now with the increasing availability and use of artificial intelligence, we are once again facing dramatic change – while many of us are still trying to familiarize ourselves with what AI actually is!
This year’s Lectures will give you the basics and beyond about artificial intelligence. Topics will include:
Foundational learning about the different types of AI and key definitions;
The potential for generative AI (think ChatGPT) to make legal practice more efficient and to increase access to justice;
The importance of human oversight and steps you can take to use AI safely and responsibly;
Ethical, competency and bias considerations; and
Impacts on health and wellness in the legal profession.
