Artificial intelligence tools are already changing the legal landscape, so how will lawyers know how to use them while complying with existing ethics rules? David Keyko and Tyler Maulsby – current and former chairs of the City Bar Professional Ethics Committee – join Azish Filabi, Executive Director of the American College of Financial Services Center for Ethics, on the latest podcast from the Digital Technologies Task Force to talk about the current landscape of ethics rules in relation to emerging digital technologies. They dig into the implications for the duties of confidentiality, disclosure and transparency while examining whether past leaps in technology – think cell phones and email – can inform the technological revolution that is happening underfoot today.

Tune in to learn more about:

  • How do current legal ethics rules address digital technology?
  • What legal ethics rules exist addressing artificial intelligence?
  • What legal ethics considerations should lawyers have when advising clients on new technologies?
  • How can legal ethics inform the choice between using a tool from a third party vendor and managing a tool in-house?
  • How should lawyers think about disclosure to clients if they’re using generative AI systems?
