About this event

Generative AI, and Large Language Models in particular, have taken the legal technology world by storm in a matter of months. How much is hype and how much will the legal profession change as a result? Opinions are varied, but very few anticipate that the impact will be insignificant.

This session will provide some insights into attitudes towards GenAI within in the legal profession and discuss how law firms could be affected by the growth of AI. We will also describe at a high level how the technology works, and how the Lexis approach differs to mitigate against bias and inaccuracy as well as ensuring the high levels of privacy and security required by legal practice. We will have a preview of the new Lexis+ AI tool and share some advice on how to approach Generative AI for legal work, including techniques for optimal prompting.
