What, specifically, are a lawyer’s ethical duties when using artificial intelligence (AI)?
Most lawyers, in our experience, cannot fully answer that question! Here are some of the primary legal ethics issues that involve a lawyer’s use of AI, including:
- Confidentiality: AI systems can store and process vast amounts of data, and lawyers must ensure that confidential client information is protected and secure.
- Bias and Fairness : AI algorithms can perpetuate or even amplify biases present in the data they are trained on, potentially leading to discriminatory outcomes.
