Course Description

This course introduces students to selected innovations in law practice technology most likely to have a major impact on the legal profession and legal institutions in the future.  No prior knowledge of programming is required, and this is not a course designed to teach students how to program.  The focus is instead on learning to think critically about what technological innovations can and cannot contribute to the practice of law and the administration of justice in America.  Reading assignments provide theoretical perspectives and historical context for changes occurring in law practice today.  Lab assignments simulate situations in which new technologies could be applied to a few basic law practice challenges.  Students develop and write a short paper about an idea for an innovation in law practice (which may be a technology solution, a new process, etc)
