Join Jacob Canter, Dave Mascenik, and Aaron Gothelf as they explore everything you wanted to know but were too embarrassed to ask about using MS Word to draft legal documents. The program will then shift to learning about the current and future impact of using Generative AI to draft legal documents and the ethical issues that surround its use.


  • What is the most efficient way to use styles if I am writing a brief? 
  • How to add images, tables, and other items to documents? 
  • How to transfer Excel tables into Word cleanly? 
  • How to add footnotes and page numbers correctly? 
  • Quick tips on how to use the Draw, Design, Reference, and Mailing tabs? 
  • Will Generative AI eventually draft all of our legal documents? 
  • Are there any ethical issues with using Generative AI to draft documents?
