LAW 929-52 Technology and Law Practice

This course will introduce you to the technological tools of law practice. Together we will explore real world-applications of technology to improve efficiencies in practice, provide better client service, and help improve access to justice. We will also discover how these technologies are envisioned and developed. In addition to hands-on learning and sampling specific tools, we will also explore how technology has and will continue to transform law practice, and how lawyers play an important role in the evolution and implementation of technology in law. Integrated into all topics will be discussions around issues arising from the use of technology, including ethics, privacy and security, well-being and distraction management, as well as connections between diversity, equity, and inclusion and technology.
