Today's adjunct law prof blog contains a very complimentary review of Professor Thomson's new book called Law School 2.0: Legal Education for a Digital Age published by Lexis and available from Amazon here. Professor Thomson is the director of the Lawyering Process Program Denver University's Sturm College of Law and a pretty good fella to boot.
Here's a description of the book from the publisher's website:
Law School 2.0: Legal Education for a Digital Age describes changes coming to legal education - how our law students are changing, and how the practice of law they are about to enter is changing as well. But change will be costly, and legal education is already expensive. This book explains how technology can play an important role in facilitating change in legal education. Indeed, the book posits that the only way out of the change/cost conundrum is through the judicious, intentional, and pervasive application of technology throughout legal education. It also suggests that these changes are increasingly urgent. We must teach in a way that more effectively prepares this generation - and future generations - for the practice of law they will enter, and leveraging technology can help us do that.
