Suggestions Welcome for Berkman Center Survey on the Impact of Technology of Legal Education and Training
LexisNexis has offered to help the Berkman Center for Internet & Society (Harvard Law School) study the impact of technology on legal education and training. The Center seeks to learn more about how to prepare new lawyers are for today’s legal work world by conducting a survey of recent graduates. [Details]. Gene Koo is soliciting suggestions for what this survey should entail. He writes
As someone interested in legal education or training (whether you’re a law professor, law firm manager, CLE provider, director of professional development, legal technologist, law librarian, associate, or law student), what did you wish you knew about today’s newest attorneys (say, those with 0-5 years of experience)? Also, given limited resources, should we attempt to survey one population (say, big firm associates) more thoroughly, or try to get participants from across practice settings?
Lee Peoples, Associate Director, Oklahoma City University School of Law Library and a contributing editor for this blog has already suggested that information literacy be a topic of this survey. Please join in by submitting your suggestions in the form of a comment to Gene's Law School Innovation blog posts here or here. [JH]

I am gravely concerned about the use of technolgy, when it displaces the professor's time/motivation to press the students to ensure their understanding of the substantive materials.
