We know that the internet already can be a tangled web of information, misinformation, and copious data.

Lawyers and clients are watching the looming specter of generative AI in legal information. How can savvy attorneys harness the boundless potential of AI to deliver accurate and effective legal information and advice to their clients, while maintaining the integrity of their practice of law? What kind of regulatory changes might be just around the corner? Join Kim Nayyer, Edward Cornell Law Librarian, Associate Dean for Library Services, and Professor of the Practice as she breaks down the basics of the world of big data and generative AI, their impact on legal and other information, and ways to discern disinformation from reliable legal information.
