QBE-LawyerGuard – Tip of the Month – Florida is the First State in the Country to Publish an Ethics Opinion on Lawyers’ Use of Generative AI

Last updated on


by the editorial staff:



Despite the emergence of generative AI technologies, the fundamental best practices and security standards for lawyers have remained steadfast. While AI can automate certain tasks and streamline processes, it cannot replace the nuanced understanding and interpretation that human lawyers bring to their work. Legal professionals are still bound by confidentiality agreements, ethical guidelines, and regulatory frameworks that require them to safeguard client information and maintain the integrity of their practice. These standards remain essential pillars of the legal profession, irrespective of technological advancements.

While generative AI has the potential to enhance certain aspects of legal practice, it does not diminish the importance of human judgment and expertise. Lawyers must continue to uphold ethical standards, exercise discretion, and leverage their creativity to effectively serve their clients. The integration of AI tools should complement, rather than replace, the indispensable role that human lawyers play in delivering legal services with integrity, diligence, and professionalism.
