The Canadian province of Manitoba has led the world in requiring lawyers to tell the court if and how they have used artificial intelligence.
The new practice direction by the Court of King’s Bench of Manitoba on the use of AI in court submissions came into effect in late-June 2023.
The court says there are “legitimate concerns about the reliability and accuracy of the information generated from the use of artificial intelligence. To address these concerns, when artificial intelligence has been used in the preparation of materials filed with the court, the materials must indicate how artificial intelligence was used.”
Chief judge Glenn Joyal signed the direction, which binds about 2000 lawyers, most of them based in the capital, Winnipeg, according to John Hyde writing in The Law Gazette of the UK. https://tinyurl.com/5n8w4d3j 2 July 2023
