CLI launches the Generative AI in Legal Practice Initiative

Published on 27 February 2023

The Centre for Legal Innovation (CLI) is delighted to announce the launch of its Generative AI in Legal Practice Initiative.

The objective of the Initiative is to create a platform for local and global discussions, discourse, and debate on the application of generative AI in all facets of legal practice.

Next month, CLI will kick off the Initiative with 14 roundtables involving over 300 lawyers (private, corporate and government), allied legal professionals, legal educators (academics, pracademics and clinicians), law students, access to justice professionals, and regulators, across the legal ecosystem.

“Generative AI will reinvent and not just innovate legal practice. It’s important for everyone in the legal ecosystem to engage in the conversations and the solutions. We’re providing that platform and the opportunity with the Initiative. This is going to be all about connecting people, encouraging experience sharing, and collaborating on practical solutions,” said Terri Mottershead, Executive Director, Centre for Legal Innovation.

CLI will share the findings and insights from the Initiative as it progresses.

Taking the generative AI in legal discussion global

CLI in collaboration with the College of Law, will take the conversation global later in the year. Save-the-date now for our FREE virtual two-day event, the Generative AI in Legal Practice Summit, on 24-25 October. The Summit will feature presenters and panellists from all stakeholder groups, comparing and contrasting the progress made in Australia and worldwide. Participants can register now for updates and information here. They can also suggest topics, contribute to the Summit, or recommend someone else by completing the relevant sections of the form.

Interested in a Fellowship in emerging technologies in legal practice?

To support this Initiative, CLI has also launched a Research Fellowship in Emerging Technologies for Australian residents who can work as independent contractors. Those interested can complete an EOI here before 5pm AEST on 31 March.
