CRA is a proud sponsor of the conference.

In April of 2024, The Sedona Conference organized its first “AI and the Law” conference. That initial conference, Part 1, was devoted to AI in civil litigation. It sold out, with a standing-room-only audience. This second conference, Part 2, will concentrate on AI in Intellectual Property law and practice.

As with Part 1, Part 2 will start with a solid practical foundation. The expert faculty will:

  • Explain the relevant technologies and define common terms,
  • Illustrate how AI is being used in legal practice today,
  • Explore issues of bias, validity, reliability, and evidential value, and
  • Examine professional responsibility issues and recent court and bar pronouncements on using AI.

Part 2 will then focus on substantive Intellectual Property issues, with dialogue leaders tackling:

  • AI in the invention and patent prosecution processes,
  • AI-related issues in patent infringement and validity actions,
  • Trade secret challenges presented by AI, and
  • AI’s challenges to copyright law, with a review of recent case law.

The conference will conclude witha panel of regulators, judges, and a key federal legislator discussing the future of AI regulation and governance.
