Beyond the Hype: The Limitations of Legal AI

Date: Friday, June 21st from 2:00 – 2:45 pm EST/1:00 – 1:45 pm CT/12:00 – 12:45 pm MT/11:00 – 11:45 am PST

We have all heard great things about legal AI and how it is going to revolutionize legal research, legal drafting, contract analysis, and eDiscovery. We are not really discussing the limitations of the tools, however. For instance, regardless of vendor advertising, no LLM is hallucination-free at this point. Some popular systems also only utilize one jurisdiction at a time, even if there is related federal or state law that may be binding on the prompt issue. This session will look at some of the current limitations and discuss the best way to present them to new AI users.
