The Sedona Conference is pleased to announce publication of Artificial Intelligence (AI) and the Practice of Law, authored by the Honorable Xavier Rodriguez, U.S. District Court Judge for the Western District of Texas.
The article will be included in The Sedona Conference Journal, Volume 24, Number 2, to be published later this year.
Judge Rodriguez presents a comprehensive, broad-based examination of how the rapid growth of artificial intelligence is poised to reshape the legal profession. AI has potential to reduce the costs and improve the quality and availability of legal services by automating routine functions and allowing lawyers to spend more time on case analysis and crafting legal arguments, but it will require attorneys, courts, rules committees and ethics bodies to assess the risks and challenges associated with its use.
The article seeks to provide attorneys with a baseline understanding of AI technology and recommends areas where state bars, courts, rules committees, and attorneys may wish to undertake further study and potential rules changes.
