In this session, we will investigate opportunities to use the Law Society of Alberta’s Generative AI Playbook to transform existing ways of practising law. We’ll explore how Gen AI and AI differ, discuss use cases across legal practice, demonstrate where Gen AI may augment, automate or innovate existing practices, and detail the risks to watch out for.
