Using AI for Legal Research: Don't Be the Next Headline

Using AI for Legal Research: Don’t be the Next Headline 
Wednesday, August 7, 2024 | 5:00 pm – 6:30 pm
Generative AI is the current technological revolution to shake up the world of legal research, promising attorneys the ability to more effectively and efficiently conduct legal research that will, in turn, reduce client costs. This research tool, however, comes with unique risks that can have significant legal and even ethical ramifications to both lawyers and clients alike. This CLE briefly explores the evolution of legal research from spending endless hours in the now essentially non-existent physical libraries to the use generative AI to identify the perfect case. It then explores the pitfalls of AI “hallucinations,” i.e., AI’s creation of “fake” legal citations that can potentially have catastrophic consequences for a lawyer who inadvertently relies on such fictional case law. Finally, it suggests helpful guidelines and practices that new, as well as experienced, lawyers should consider implementing to avoid being the next victim of a generative AI hallucination.
