Explanation by our lawyers in Law 360

Ottawa (Canada) – With the still new, but rapid, development of artificial intelligence, the Manitoba Court of King’s Bench—one of the first courts in North America—issued a directive to ensure that all lawyers henceforth disclose any use of artificial intelligence in the preparation of documents.

The June 23, 2023, directive follows a recent case in a New York that made headlines because a firm used ChatGPT as part of its research strategy. Some of the cases mentioned in the brief were entirely fictitious.

Ryan Flewelling, lawyer and partner, and Neelum Raja, lawyer, take a look at the ins and outs of this directive, but above all address good practices to adopt when it comes to artificial intelligence in the legal field.
