New Guidelines: Responsible use of AI in litigation in Victoria

The Supreme Court of Victoria has published its guidelines for the responsible use of artificial intelligence in litigation. The guidelines have been developed to assist both self-represented litigants and legal practitioners conducting litigation in the Supreme Court.

When using AI, parties and practitioners should be aware that the privacy and confidentiality of information and data provided to an external program to generate answers may not be guaranteed and personal information may not be secure.

The Court warns that a party or practitioner signing or certifying a document, filing a document with the Court, or otherwise relying on a document’s contents in a proceeding, remains responsible for accuracy of the content.

Self-represented litigants and witnesses should disclose if they have used AI to draft legal documents and identify which AI program(s) used.

A complete copy of the guidelines may be accessed via the Supreme Court website.
