As an attorney, protecting your clients' data is of paramount importance. With the rise of generative AI like large language models (LLMs), there are new risks and legal considerations to navigate. In this essential session for legal professionals, lawyer and founder of Tech Contracts Academy David Tollen, and CTO and AI practitioner Evan Harris, will provide an analysis of the current data protection terms governing leading large language models.

Drawing from their recent article "Fine Print Face-Off: Which Top Large Language Models Provide the Best Data Protection Terms? recently published on LegalEvolution, Tollen and Harris will compare the policies of LLM models like OpenAI, Anthropic, AWS, Google Gemini, Mistral, and Cohere, and gauge the extent to which their terms of use and/or commercial SaaS agreement contracts protect the data being fed into the LLM. Attendees will gain invaluable insights into the fine print governing these models, understand the nuances of data and content ownership, and explore the broader implications for intellectual property rights. This webinar is designed to equip lawyers, law firms, and in-house legal teams with the knowledge to navigate the complexities of AI contract review and leverage legal AI tools effectively while mitigating potential risks.

As LLMs are increasingly used by law firms and corporate legal departments to drive efficiency, understanding data protection is crucial. What happens when you feed confidential client data or work product into an LLM? Do you retain ownership and control? What are the potential risks of exposing sensitive information?

  • Analysis of data protection approaches across OpenAI, Anthropic, AWS, Google, Mistral, Cohere and others
  • Potential IP risks when using LLMs with client data or work product

Whether you're already using LLMs or just starting to explore generative AI, this is a can't-miss webinar. The legal industry is being transformed by AI, and understanding the data protection landscape is critical for lawyers to advise clients and manage risk effectively.
