Regulating AI in the Legal Marketplace: Where to Draw the Line?
Providers of legal services and legal technology tools, like many other businesses, are introducing AI into their organizations to drive quality, efficiency, and innovation. To what extent should regulators be involved in lawyers’ use of AI in the provision of legal services and the development of AI-based tools that purport to provide legal services?
Topics to be discussed include:
- Whether legal regulators have a role in regulating the development and use of legal AI tools
- Cooperation between regulators in the regulation of AI
- Updates from the EU, including the issue of how far AI should be permitted to go down the legal decision-making process,
- Ethical frameworks to guide the application of AI in judicial systems and provision of legal services
- Should different AI tools be regulated differently. For example, do predictive analytics tools require different or more stringent regulation than “chatbots”?
- Should AI augment or drive the provision of legal services and making of decisions and how does the use of AI in legal services affect the roles and responsibilities of lawyers?
