Technology & the Legal Profess

Academic Year

The class will be a technology survey class which emphases the pragmatic use of technology in the legal profession. The mission of the class would be both to educate students as to the technological advances that are changing the legal profession as well as how technology is changing the world we live in, and, significantly, the legal ramifications of such new technologies in both traditional and emerging areas of law. One goal of the class would be for young lawyers to be able to walk into their first job being sufficiently sophisticated to be able to spot technology issues that more senior lawyers may not appreciate.
