Here's another article from the recent Chicago Kent symposium on Lawyering and Legal Education in the Digital Age entitled The Teaching of Law Practice Management and Technology in Law Schools: A New Paradigm by Richard S. Granat (and here) and Stephanie Kimbro and available at 88 Chi.-Kent. L. Rev. 757 (2013) and here at SSRN. From the abstract:
The law school curriculum is wholly inadequate to train future lawyers in law practice management and technology. Training in law practice management and law practice technology is a critical solution that will further align the skills that law students must have upon graduation with the employment needs of a radically changing legal market. As legal educators and administrators rethink their law school’s package of educational services, this article will provide guidance. Accordingly, what follows is not a traditional law review article. It is an analysis of a deficiency in one area of the traditional law school curriculum and a proposed solution to fix it.
