How ChatGPT and other AI Could Impact Your Practice: A Webinar
Join us from 9-10 a.m. for this webinar introduction on what lawyers should know about Artificial intelligence (AI). For some, AI is an exciting new way to use technology, but others are deeply ambivalent. No matter how you feel, one thing is clear: you need to learn how this new technology will impact the practice of law. For example, the emerging technology of ChatGPT, a powerful AI language model, has the potential to transform legal practice through its ability to provide general legal advice as well as legal research, contract drafting, and document review. While there is potential for AI to improve efficiency and access to justice, there are also dangers and ethical pitfalls that lawyers need to understand. Join Dr. Robert Spangler, Assistant Executive Director and CISO at NJSBA for this free webinar introduction to information every attorney should have. REGISTER HERE.

Legal Research with Decisis: A Webinar: Enhance your research skills in this webinar from 12-1 p.m. Explore the advanced features of Decisis, our powerful legal research tool. Discover efficient methods to access legal information and streamline your work. REGISTER HERE.

Webinar: From Boardwalk Empire to Better Emails and Briefs
Judge Nelson Johnson, the retired state Superior Court judge and award-winning author, wants attorneys to write and argue better.

His newest book, “Style & Persuasion: A Handbook for Lawyers” – published by the New Jersey State Bar Association – offers concepts for attorneys of every ilk to build confidence and transform their writing styles in an innovative format. Join us for a free webinar from 12-1 p.m. on Oct. 4. This session has something for everyone. There’s general writing guidance; advice on how to be your own editor; insights on how to structure your composition or how to create a lead; and information on crafting pleadings, briefs and oral arguments.
