McKenzie & Vaughn on How Computers Change the Way Lawyers Think

Posted by Alan Childress

In addition to our previous post on Richard Danner's article, consider that Elizabeth McKenzie and Susan Vaughn, both law librarians at Suffolk (and Betsy McKenzie is a law prof and the library's director), have posted to SSRN their article, "PCs and CALR: Changing the Way Lawyers Think."  It is also linked in PDF here from bepress.  Here is their abstract:

Computers are changing the way lawyers and judges think. The authors measured differences in analogical reasoning in briefs and decisions written before computers were used in law, and now. They argue that the changes found mandate changes in legal education, that students need more emphasis on careful reading and analysis.
