Feedback form is now closed.
As more and more states take note of ABA Standard RPC 1.1 Comment [8] and add state level rules which require that lawyers have basic technology competency, more law schools are responding and adding technology courses to their course offerings. This session will be discussing three major themes aimed at teaching a new technology course. Michael Robak will offer a walkthrough of the approval process for proposing a new technology course and offer tips for getting faculty and administrative officials onboard. Nichelle "Nikki" Perry will discuss methods and options for choosing your course content. Not all classes need to cover the same content! Knowing where and how your students will practice can make a difference in class coverage. Stacey Rowland will give an overview of a recently taught course at the University of North Carolina discussing technology for new lawyers. This course covered topics such as Advanced Legal Research through Ravel and Bloomberg Law Litigation Analytics, using Word Styles as a foundation for document automation, asking students to construct a mock law firm website, litigation support services as well as hands on experience with CLIO and kCura's Relativity. Our panel will offer a postmortem of our courses and share our experiences with other schools who are looking to develop a similar class.
