Conference Outcomes Report: The State of the Art of Artificial Intelligence in the Practice of Law

On November 9, 2021, the AI Initiative of the Silicon Flatirons Center for Law, Technology, and Entrepreneurship at the University of Colorado Law School hosted a conference to discuss and analyze AI’s use in the Practice of Law. In the first session of the conference, panelists examined what AI tools were being used by lawyers in the transactional practice, those tools’ popularity, and the role and impact of AI in legal transactional practice. In the second session of the conference, panelists analyzed AI in the context of civil and criminal litigation, as well as whether AI was outperforming manual methods used in the discovery process and implications for prosecution and defense branches. In the third and last session of the conference, panelists discussed the likely trajectory of AI and law over the next five years and basing their realistic predictions on the current capabilities that AI technology possesses.
