A Supreme Court Committee comprised of experts within and outside the Judiciary met for the first time this afternoon to examine the legal and ethical implications that artificial intelligence poses for court operations and the practice of law.
The 31-member Supreme Court Committee on Artificial Intelligence and the Courts includes judicial and government leaders, judges, attorneys, educators, and cybersecurity and technology experts.
“Artificial intelligence is a tool that we are still learning about, and while it holds the potential for great opportunities, it can also create significant challenges within the legal community. This committee brings together leaders with different backgrounds and perspectives who can engage in a comprehensive review of the myriad issues this new technology presents for the courts,” Chief Justice Stuart Rabner said.
The Court invites the committee to examine potential policies and practices in numerous areas, including the appropriate use (and possible limitations for use) of artificial intelligence in legal contexts, the disclosure of the use of artificial intelligence in court submissions and testimony, and proper guidance for self-represented litigants and other court users.
Glenn A. Grant, administrative director of the courts, will serve as chair of the committee.
