3 CLE / .5 E - Friday, August 4; 9:00 A.M. - 12:15 P.M.

LIVE WEBCAST ONLY! - From your home or office


You’ve seen, heard, and read the buzz around artificial intelligence. If you’re wondering how this applies to your practice (both in maintaining an office and in case management), Sam Hodge, Jr. has consolidated multiple sources into a comprehensive presentation that will be useful in your understanding and application of AI to your practice.

Joining Sam will be Magistrate Judge Drew Bloch from Hamilton Superior Court and Seth R. Wilson, from Adler Attorneys in Noblesville.

Be aware... of the efficiencies and time-saving abilities that AI-based services afford. Sam will use a “hands-on approach” that will demonstrate 12 services that provide:

Text writing

Case law research in a natural language format

Contact drafting, negotiating, and review

Document creation, such as the writing of a brief or complaint

Predictive outcomes based on facts, venue, opponent, and judge!

Grammar, text generation, and sentence editing

Sentence-based parallel investigations

Document translation that can identify common clauses, provisions, and data points

Risk assessment tools for sentencing and bail decisions

Be afraid... of hallucinations, deep fakes, outright fraud, and multiple unintended consequences.

Sam further investigates the limitations of the technology, security concerns, and liability issues that are still being “worked out.”

Finally, as with any new avenue of exploration, novel ethical issues and questions of law arise. Several have been identified, and some have even been addressed! Ethical and legal hurdles: Competence, confidentiality, copyright issues, tort & contract liability
