Pennsylvania Bar Association and Philadelphia Bar Association Issue a Joint Formal Opinion on the Use of Artificial Intelligence (AI) in the Legal Profession

Here is a LINK to a Joint Formal Opinion issued by the Pennsylvania Bar Association and the Philadelphia Bar Association on May 22, 2024 regarding advice on the use of Artificial Intelligence (AI) in the legal profession.

The Opinion itself notes that it is "advisory only" and is not binding on the Disciplinary Board of the Supreme Court of Pennsylvania or any other Court.  The Opinion further notes that the Opinion only carries such weight as an appropriate reviewing authority may choose to give it.

Generally speaking, the Opinion recommends that attorneys be aware of, and competent with, the use of AI in the legal profession.  The Opinion recommends that those in the legal profession check the veracity of all information generated through the use of AI, including citations to legal authority.  The Opinion also cautions that client confidentiality should be protected at all times.
