PreLaw honors Suffolk tech law programs

Suffolk University Law School was listed among PreLaw Magazine’s “Best Law Schools for Technology Law” in the magazine’s spring issue. Earlier this year, PreLaw ranked Suffolk among its “Top 20 Most Innovative Law Schools” and featured the school in an article, “How Suffolk Law is redefining practice-ready.” In that article the magazine called Suffolk “one of the most innovative forces in legal education.”

In the Best Law Schools for Technology ranking, the publication explained that Suffolk students, through the school’s Institute on Legal Innovation and Technology (LIT), learn about cutting-edge legal issues related to the use of new technologies, and how to use those technologies in the practice of law. “Students get a front row seat to see and work with issues being brought about by the rise of machine learning, online legal services and automated legal assistance,” the publication wrote.

Suffolk Law’s offerings have repeatedly been recognized as forward-thinking. For example, students in Suffolk’s Accelerator Program won the ABA’s top honor for innovations that improve access to legal services for moderate-income people. The LIT Institute was named Pro Bono Innovator of the Year by Legaltech News. These accolades reflect Suffolk Law’s longstanding excellence in skills-based legal education. Suffolk Law is the only law school in the nation that has placed four legal skills specialties in U.S. News’ top 20 for three years running.
