Join us on April 25th at Stikeman Elliott for our April member's meeting. Carla Swansburg, VP and General Manger at Epiq Systems will present on Ethical Issues with Artificial Intelligence in Law and we will provide you with Women in eDiscovery updates and let you know about events we have planned for the next few months.
Lunch is generously sponsored by Epiq Systems and hosted by Stikeman Elliott.
This program will involve a 30-minute presentation with 15 minutes for Q&A on issues relating to artificial intelligence and ethics in legal service delivery.
Questions to be addressed include:
1. Is technology deploying AI actually "practising law"?
2. Is there an ethical duty to deploy technology in legal services where it is available?
3. Professional Responsibilities: how current LSO professional obligations fit into AI in practice.
