Institute on Legal Innovation & Technology
is designed to prepare students for this new and evolving legal marketplace by providing students with the knowledge and skill set that
21st century lawyers need.
The Future of Legal Education
Dean Andrew Perlman’s innovations garnered the attention of the national media, with coverage in the Washington Post, National Law Journal, and ABA Journal, among others. Some of the topics covered by those publications included the development of an audit to assess lawyer’s basic legal technology skills and the Law School’s first-of-its-kind legal technology concentration.
We have to get students thinking about how to deliver legal services in new ways and how to create new niches in the legal industry. This only comes from teaching students to think about legal services in an entrepreneurial way.
There’s a need right now because technology is transforming the practice of law in amazing and dramatic ways. Legal professionals need to understand how to use technology to innovate in a competitive marketplace.
