AI+ Education | 2023 Scholarship
Gary Burger and the Burger Law team are pleased to announce our latest $500 scholarship to eligible students. See below for scholarship content terms.
You can't throw a rock without hitting something or someone that has been touched by AI in the past few months. Wherever you look, you see products and hear stories about novel applications and uses for generative AI and other AI tools. In the legal practice, there was even a lawyer who recently made the news for getting caught using ChatGPT to prepare a legal brief. At Burger Law, we consider that a breach of ethics, but even we have explored the uses of AI in other areas of our lives.
There is no doubt that AI is powerful and its uses have the potential to significantly change the way things work. Education is one area in particular (along with professional practices like law and medicine) where there is a lot of gray area. It can be used for good, to tailor education to the student, but it can also be used by students to check out and skip some of the hard work that goes into learning.
What is your impression of AI so far? Does it have a place in the classroom? Share your thoughts and opinions about AI in education in an essay for a chance to win our Burger Law 2023 Q3 scholarship!
For Q3 2023, Burger Law is offering a $500 scholarship to current and incoming college students. The contest details are outlined below.
If you would like to apply for this scholarship, please submit the following by Sept 29:
