There’s no doubt that artificial intelligence (AI) is one of the hot topics that we have been talking about so far during the first month of 2023. In fact, perhaps 2023 will be the year of AI – especially as technology continues to rapidly advance and we discover more real-world use applications for AI that can help fuel a new wave of digital transformation for organizations.

This interesting article in The New York Times last month does a great job in framing the rise of #GenerativeAI that has been led by ChatGPT.

As #inhouselegal departments continue to optimize their resources and engage in relentless work prioritization, there are interesting opportunities for legal teams to deploy generative AI like #chatbots to serve their clients.

Chatbots may be used by clients of #corporatecounsel as a form of “self-service” to help address the multitude of repetitive and lower legal risk questions that are asked of #inhousecounsel.

Using such #AI resources as a digital legal concierge for clients can help free up time for in-house attorneys to perform higher-impact work for their organizations.

Here are some possible subject matter areas which could be “chatbot ready” for corporate counsel to use with their clients:

How to Engage with the Legal Department and Legal Department Primary Contacts

Standard Form Company Agreements

Company Contract Signing Authority & Appovers

Basics of Confidential Information Protection

Basics of Intellectual Property Protection

Company Internal Policies

Smart Social Media Usage

Basic Legal Considerations for Marketing/Advertising

Basic Legal Considerations for Developing Customer/Partner Proposals or Responding to a Customer’s/Partner’s Request for Proposal (RFP) or Request for Information (RFI)

I’m super excited to see how advancements in AI will help lawyers better serve their clients!
