The Ethics of AI in Litigation



AI Technology and the Legal Industry

The ever-increasing use of Artificial Intelligence (AI) in the legal industry brings both unprecedented benefits and the need for cautious consideration. In particular, legal AI has an amazing ability to summarize large data sets like transcripts and medical records, thereby empowering lawyers and law firms to deliver more accurate, cost-effective, and client-centric services.

However, amidst this potential, the legal industry also grapples with complex challenges related to AI’s regulatory implications. Ensuring compliance with evolving legal standards, safeguarding data privacy, and mitigating algorithmic biases demand attention. In this whitepaper we look at striking a delicate balance between harnessing AI’s capabilities and navigating the regulatory landscape to fully leverage its benefits while upholding ethical and legal principles within the legal profession.
