Legal Technology

Under the American Bar Association's Model Rules of Professional Conduct, attorneys are required to "keep abreast of changes in the law and its practice, including the benefits and risks associated with relevant technology." In this course, technology for law practice will be examined, with topics including, but not limited to, cloud computing, virtual law practice, information security, courtroom and mobile technologies, e-discovery, social media, and technology-enabled access to justice. Throughout the course, emphasis will be placed on both the ethical implications associated with the use of technologies, as well as on practical strategies for using technology in daily law practice. Evaluation will be based on participation during in-class discussions, a group presentation, and a final project that incorporates one or more of the technology topics we discuss.
