Course overview

Unlock gen AI for legal use cases; get up to speed on why everyone is hyped

OpenAI's GPT passes the bar exam with higher scores than humans. BCG consultants using ChatGPT finished 12% more tasks, 25.1% faster, at 40% higher quality. The upshot? When prompted well, GPT will make you a better, faster, and more effective lawyer. Once you know how to prompt, you'll wish you'd had GPT for legal work for years.

This crash course will give you practical, immediately useful learnings on actual AI prompting with GPT. You'll get a great intro to GPT and how it works. Then get your hands dirty with the tool, with an experienced GC and AI expert there to help and push you with practical tips and tricks.

I promise: you'll be shocked at the quality of GPT's legal outputs.

Note: this is the one-session crash course - 75 minutes on one day. For a deeper experience, such as learning more specific prompts for GPT in your practice area, I recommend the 2 session class at

What you’ll get out of this course

Learn how GPT works and how to get great results.

GPT is like a smart, fast intern who has read and can recall the entire internet. The metaphor will help explain _how_ you can use your already-great lawyer skills to get GPT to do great work for you.

Get and practice a proven prompting method that works for legal use cases.

Good prompting can take GPT's answers from about 65% accurate to 92+%. We'll reivew the [company]-[context]-[task] method that gives great results.

Develop ease with GPT for your work

Once you have a good prompt, you'll find asking GPT for help will cut the time you spend drafting significantly. We'll talk about good uses of it and incorporating it into your team and general productivity.
