Spotlight on Responsible AI: Why an MIT Task Force Is Advocating for 'Informed Caution'

To address these growing concerns around the responsible and ethical use of AI in the legal profession, has assembled a Task Force “to develop principles and guidelines on ensuring factual accuracy, accurate sources, valid legal reasoning, alignment with professional ethics, due diligence, and responsible use of Generative AI for law and legal processes.”

In part 1 of this series, we outlined the Task Force’s seven proposed principles and their next steps toward finalizing them, including a call for industry feedback. The principles are based on the Task Force’s belief that generative AI “provides powerfully useful capabilities for law and law practice and, at the same time, requires some informed caution for its use in practice.”
