    EmPOWERed for Public Interest Initiative

    Law schools need to do more to support the well-being, needs, and leadership development of students of color, students from low-income backgrounds, students with disabilities, immigrant students, LGBTQ+ students, formerly incarcerated students, and students with families who have been impacted by the criminal or immigration enforcement systems. This space is meant to build a positive community for students who not only have these experiences, but whose public interest work as attorneys may be directly tied to their lived experiences and/or those of their loved ones. For example: students who have themselves or had family members become entangled in the criminal legal system who are interested in public defense work; immigrant students, or students who are the children or family members of immigrants seeking to challenge the immigration system; low-income students seeking to challenge laws and policy that further marginalize low-income people such as predatory lending, cash bail, etc.

    This program seeks to serve as a space for dialogue, mentorship, and resource-sharing that is tailored to the particular needs, and strengths, of students in this position.

    Please RSVP by noon, September 15:

    Generative A.I. by Knobb

    Mauricio Uribe (a Partner at Knobbe Martens) will be giving a presentation about Generative A.I. and its potential uses/misuses.

    Over the past six months, the public availability and widespread use of various generative artificial intelligence (Generative AI) AI solutions, such as Chat GPT Dall-E-2, Co-Pilot, etc., has presented numerous legal, technical and ethical considerations across most every industry and geography region. Given the potential for widespread use, it is important for organizations to understand key issues and best practices surrounding use of Generative AI solutions in developing policies and assessing legal, technical and business strategies related to Generative AI. Specifically, what does it mean when a company’s employees use these powerful tools in their daily work? Come learn how these tools are being used/misused and IP and business risks for using AI-based tools. Using Open AI’s current terms of service as a case study, our discussion will include a review of the availability of trade secret, copyright and patent protection based on outputs generated by Generative AI services and how to formulate workable policies in the workplace.
