More on Cardozo's new technology focused curriculum

The Law Technology News blog has some additional details (see prior post here) about Cardozo's new programs including the Data Law Initiative, Tech Startup Clinic and Law Tech Talks.  The LTN post includes some brief comments from Patrick Burke, the Executive Director of The Data Law Initiative and Counsel at Reed Smith as well as former Assistant General Counsel at Guidance Software.  Here's a short excerpt:

Cardozo Law Offers New Technology Programs: Reed Smith's Patrick Burke serves as executive director of the new Cardozo Data Law Initiative.

. . . .


Cardozo was one of the early adopters of e-discovery courses. Patrick Burke, counsel at Reed Smith and former senior director and assistant general counsel at Guidance Software, already teaches two classes at the law school: "E-Discovery, Digital Evidence and Computer Forensics," and "Information Governance Law." He's just added to his plate.



Cardozo Law’s new programs include The Cardozo Data Law Initiative, the Tech Startup Clinic and Cardozo Law Tech Talks. Burke (a member of Law Technology News' editorial advisory board) is the new executive director of CDLI, which focuses on data privacy issues (including the data breaches that have rocked the financial world in recent months). CDLI will offer courses in social media law, information governance, e-discovery and cybersecurity.



“The impetus for the CDLI came from businesses who wanted lawyers with training and familiarity in big data law and technology,” said Burke. “Working with advisors from business, law and government, CDLI is turning the law school model around to position Cardozo as a feeder school to corporations, government, and others who are hungry for a new generation of tech-savvy data lawyers.”
