  • The use of artificial intelligence (“AI”) raises a variety of complicated ethics issues for attorneys. Part I of this paper will review recent changes in technology and how ethics committees across the country have sought to apply the Rules of Professional Conduct in the evolving digital world, often resulting in inconsistent opinions across, and sometimes within, jurisdictions. Part II of this paper will review various ways in which AI is being utilized in the legal profession. Part III of this paper will discuss particular Rules of Professional Conduct that apply to lawyers using AI. This paper supplements a presentation on this topic delivered at the 2017 Jackson Lewis Corporate Counsel Conference.
