OpenAI's GPT passes the bar exam with higher scores than most humans. BCG consultants using ChatGPT finished 12% more tasks, 25.1% faster, at 40% higher quality. Writers using GPT-3.5 completed writing tasks more quickly (+40%) and at higher quality (+18%). In other words, GPT-4 is really good.
The upshot? When prompted well, GPT will make you and your legal team better, faster, and more effective. Once you know how to prompt, you'll wish you'd had GPT for your legal work for years.
"Gen AI & Prompting for Lawyers" will give you a practical, transformative experience on actual AI prompting. You'll 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 GPT's legal outputs for you, day in, day out. You'll be using it for everything from answering questions in Slack, to drafting new form agreements, to ideating and brainstorming on gnarly legal and policy judgement calls. You'll earn the coveted "lawyer who gets it" and "wow, you're fast" praise, while giving high quality legal advice you, your clients, your board, and your regulators can feel good about.
In-house counsel curious about AI but unsure how to get started, or who want to increase their impact.
Law firm lawyers who want to learn to use gen AI like cutting edge Silicon Valley legal teams.
Legal team members (managers, legal ops, interns, aspiring lawyers) who want to up their AI game or help their teams do so.
Get a clear overview from Cecilia of how GPT works through examples, a clear metaphor, and enough technical info to make sense. We'll get into why and how crafting prompts with context will increase GPT's effectiveness and reduce hallucination.
We'll cover the "Company-Context-Task" method -- a clear, repeatable prompting framework that yields more comprehensive and tailored answers and work product for legal and compliance tasks. You'll get a main template and 6-8 templates by practice area.
You'll leave the class with a set of prompts that work well for your role and for your workflows. We'll go through specific sample prompts for each area of law (e.g. corporate, employment, privacy, and IP). Get templates you and anyone on your team can apply.
First, we'll go over using Browse with Bing within ChatGPT for real-time tasks or review of specific websites, like for trademark field of use analysis. Second, OpenAI just released custom GPTs. We'll show how you'd create a legal one.
