Online registration is closed.  Please contact Elina Gross at if you would like to register.


Artificial Intelligence’s (AI) continued development and rise is increasingly touching more and more use cases, and driving debate on the practical, legal, and policy fronts. Notably, policymakers have focused on U.S. copyright law and policy issues raised by AI technology, including the scope of copyright in works generated using AI tools, the use of copyrighted materials in AI training, and who is liable for copyright violations. Where and how these questions are resolved will have an outsized impact on the trajectory of AI’s development and uses.

This CLE will convene a diversity of experts to (1) provide critical background and status on where and how copyright law is intersecting with AI and (2) discuss the future of AI and copyright policy and law.
