CLI Appoints Distinguished Fellow in Legal Prompt Engineering

CLI is delighted to announce the appointment of Dr Mitchell Adams as a Distinguished Fellow in Emerging Technologies with a focus on legal prompt engineering.

Mitchell’s work will include identifying and developing education opportunities in prompt engineering, a framework for classification of legal generative AI, and a methodology to connect the dots between the two, through a series of webinars, podcasts, blogs and white/papers/reports.

In undertaking this Fellowship, Mitchell will draw on his experience in practice, as a tech developer, researcher, and teacher.

“We are very excited to have Mitchell join us,” said CLI’s Executive Director, Terri Mottershead. “Prompt engineering is the powerhouse for generative AI implementation. New roles are emerging in this area. It will invariably become a critical skill for all legal practitioners. Research in this area is still emerging. For all these reasons, this Fellowship timely, practical, ground breaking, and it aligns with CLI’s focus on legal generative AI.”

“I am excited to join CLI as a Distinguished Fellow and explore the ever-evolving landscape of law and technology. This appointment underscores our collective commitment to fostering innovation in the legal field,” said Mitchell Adams.
