Juan Perla, Aubre Dean and Steven Thomas Publish Article in Law360 on AI Standing Orders Issued by Federal Courts

Partner Juan Perla, as well as associates Aubre Dean and Steven Thomas have published a new article in Law360; “Federal Courts Issue Standing Orders Regulating the Use of AI: Safety or Overkill?”. The article examines the recent standing orders issued by different courts. Some courts completely ban the use of AI in courts filing, while some require attorneys to confirm for themselves the accuracy of any research conducted by generative AI.

The mixed reactions to these orders are discussed, some are either willing to ban the use of AI or use it for faster, fairer and more cost-efficient work. Mr. Perla, Ms. Dean and Mr. Thomas go on to explain the varying state bar association guidelines.

Subsequently, the article highlights the potential that artificial intelligence has to improve the legal work product, reduce legal costs and increase access to justice. Moreover, it is also salient for courts to remain vigilant of potential risks, such as concerns in relation to accuracy and confidentiality. The article considers that by being too restrictive too quickly, courts may be inadvertently hampering the professional development of lawyers in their jurisdictions.
