Sprint to catch up to this one.
New York Law School will offer a certificate program in "Law Practice Technology" to train lawyers to be facile with cutting edge technology.
The program, initially designed for 10 students, aims to train lawyers who can adapt the intricacies of technology to help solve a client's problem.
Certificate candidates will focus on mastering:
"Creation of a complex Web site or blog; Electronic discovery/evidence analysis; Case-mapping software creation; Use of audio, video and graphic tools in electronic courtroom presentation; Document assembly software creation; Cross-firm online deal room systems creation; Software creation for electronic licensing, corporate governance and practice management; Online dispute resolution; and Bringing governmental institutions online."
I think that I need some academic support to understand what it means to create "cross-firm online deal room."
My, it is an exciting time to be involved in the education of the next generation of professionals. (els)
