The promise of generative AI is awe-inspiring. Today, however, the questions about generative AI sometimes outnumber the answers. Using Generative AI for Legal Research provides a framework professors can use to introduce generative AI into the research curriculum.

To use generative AI effectively, researchers must be aware both of its potential and its limitations. Using Generative AI for Legal Research explores how generative AI fits within a process for conducting legal research. Specifically, this material:
  • Addresses advantages and risks of using AI-generated information;
  • Outlines tasks for which generative AI is and is not useful;
  • Describes how to prompt an AI text generator to produce useful information; and
  • Offers guidelines for when and how to cite AI-generated information.
The content follows the structure of chapters in Basic Legal Research: Tools and Strategies (Revised 8th ed., 2024) and includes research examples and a chapter checklist. Although this material fits with Basic Legal Research, it can also be used as a stand-alone supplement with other instructional materials.

I hope you will find Using Generative AI for Legal Research instructive.
