AI and the Law Workshops for 2024 (as of March 11, 2024)

Dave Woodin is planning to hold three more sessions to build upon his recent training. Below is a copy of the email Dave sent out to those who previously attended the last AI training:

To all GCBA members,

I thoroughly enjoyed sharing with everyone who attended the March 1 program on Introduction to Uses of AI in Legal Practice. Based on evaluations, several attendees requested that we plan some follow-up sessions.

To that end, I have planned a series of workshops.  These will be informal sessions (not CLEs), where those interested can ask questions, discuss ongoing work, as well as work on and share projects of their own.  

I have reserved time and space for the first three sessions, on Friday 03/22/24, Friday 04/12/24 and Friday 05/03/24, from 1:30 to 3:30 pm, at 411 Main Street, Catskill, in Room 428 (a different room than last time, on account of  “early voting” that I’ve been told will be in progress those dates).

All sessions are free to GCBA members.  I ask that you do email me to reserve, so I can keep track of available seating.  In your email, please indicate what session(s) you will attend, and please include any thoughts or requests for topics that you would like to see covered.

The field continues to change rapidly – since the first session, there have already been major developments.  I look forward to exploring them together!

Thanks and hope to see lots of you again soon.
