Artificial Intelligence
For Attorneys: Online Course

Artificial Intelligence for the Legal Profession

"The AI Consultants at Shelton & Steele are unlike anyone else out

there. First, they taught me everything I should NOT do with AI and

why. That was critical. Then they showed me several things that AI

can do and that blew my mind. Finally, they gave me practical, usable

strategies that will change everything about the way I practice law (and the way I market my services!) forever."
Celeste Moy
, Rimon Law

"Honestly, I was very skeptical about AI. Then Mr. Shelton gave several members of my firm a glance behind the curtain and showed us what no one else is talking about. He's very specific about training your AI in advance and his ROSE formula for Prompt Engineering is nothing less than genius. He doesn't talk about AI. He shows you how to do what no one else knows how to do."
Partner, San Diego Law Firm

"Wow. Just wow. I don't even know what to say. I'm now SO far ahead of anyone I know, when it comes to how to use AI. And it was easy! This course is going to put a lot of attorneys way ahead of their competition."
Partner, North Carolina AmLaw Firm
