Senior research lawyer Julia Lawn and Megan Vis-Dunbar of the BC Law Institute, co-chairs of a forthcoming professional development seminar, have assembled a group of lawyers, jurists and academics to ask “Can the Chatbot write my factum?”

This day-long CLEBC program looks at the future of legal research, examining the impact of artificial intelligence and emerging technologies on legal research so far, both for the researcher and in the courts. Panelists, including NST associate Allyse Cruise, will share tips for combining traditional strategies with creative use of technology and design thinking to successfully solve challenging research problems. The course will take place in Vancouver on 17 October 2023 and features a lunchtime keynote address by U of T Law Professor Abdi Aidid.  More information available here.
