There’s an App for That
September 21 & 22, 2012 -- Chicago, Illinois
Seattle University School of Law and IIT Chicago-Kent College of Law have announced the re-scheduling of their co-sponsored conference focusing on changes in research and practice mechanics resources.
Participants will hear from the providers and developers of research resources, as well as those who develop and use the “new mechanics” of law practice. And then the focus will turn to how we, as legal educators, should address these changes. The teaching challenges and opportunities are more obvious than ever:
What are these new research resources and practice technologies?
What will these research resources and practice mechanics look like in five years?
How much should we, as teachers, learn about these fast-changing resources?
How should we teach about these resources?
How should we deal with the potential ethical and practical pitfalls posed by these resources?
And how do all of these questions play into preparing “practice ready” graduates?
More info will be posted here as it becomes available.
