Technology in the Practice of Law

The competent use of technology is a vital part of modern law practice. Twenty-seven states have already adopted an ethical duty of technology competency with many more surely to follow. Contrary to what many people believe, routine use of a computer does not lead to the kind of technological competence required in today’s legal profession. Students can expect to explore a variety of technology concepts and software with special focus on professional responsibility, case and client management, document management and electronic discovery, information literacy, presentation technology, and office skills.
