Legal Generative AI Summit 2023

Published on 30 November 2020

On October 24 and 25, we created one of the largest online legal generative AI learning communities in the world. We collaborated and connected with 2,423 amazing people from 81 countries – law students, early career professionals, lawyers, allied legal professionals, legal educators, and A2J specialists – everyone, everywhere!

Over 9 sessions and through the contribution of an outstanding international faculty of 33 specialists in legal practice, legal ops, legal education, legal innovation, access to justice, professional responsibility and risk, talent management, we explored why, where and how to apply this tech in legal business.

We gratefully acknowledge the generosity of our faculty and sponsors (Actionstep and Smokeball Australia) who made it possible to offer the Summit for free. And, thank our supporters for helping us get the word out.

If you would like to see a summary of the key takeaways from the Summit, you’ll find that Report here. You can watch or listen to the replays of each session - they’re listed in the table below.

We are in this space for the long run and, if you are too, please join our global Legal Generative AI Global Community for updates on our work in this area, and sign up for our Week in Review.

And, if you are looking for resources to help understand legal GenAI fundamentals, then please watch or listen to our free AI for Legal Series.

Don’t forget, if we can assist in any way, please connect with us at
