Overview

How can lawyers harness the potential of generative AI (GenAI) to remain competitive in a rapidly evolving legal landscape? This course will equip lawyers with a fundamental understanding of how GenAI works, its practical uses and how to navigate its inherent risks. 

Lawyers, law firms and in-house teams are already starting to use GenAI to improve productivity and create better outcomes for clients. But even lawyers who are hesitant to adopt GenAI will find it is unavoidable – as many software providers are already rushing to incorporate GenAI into their existing products.

The reality is that all lawyers now require a basic understanding of how GenAI works, its practical uses and how to navigate its inherent risks.

Enrol in this course to get a practical overview of what GenAI is, how lawyers can use it in their day-to-day practice, and key pitfalls to avoid. You’ll also get to discover our brand-new AI-powered learning activity - what could be a better way to learn about GenAI?

    This was a great course!
    Highly informative, and provided a great historical timeline review of AI, the different types of AI, and how lawyers can use AI in their everyday legal practice activities. Also provided a pdf resource for the management of AI within law firms and highlighted the various AI platform providers and present developments of AI within Australia and internationally. Very well-researched course. Well worth the investment.
