preLaw Magazine's list of top law schools for "legal technology"

PreLaw Magazine has published a list of the top law schools for "legal technology" training which the publisher defines as schools that go beyond offering a "basic" menu of coursework addressing the intersection of law and technology, like intellectual property and patent law, but also offer courses addressing emerging technologies like crypto-currencies and blockchain. In creating its "Top 30" ranking of legal technology schools, preLaw graded each school based on the following criteria: 1. The breadth of each school's technology offerings; 2. the number and types of courses it offers; 3. whether the school has a technology oriented clinic, externship or lab; 4. whether it offers a certificate in "technology law" and/or an LL.M. program; and 5. whether the school has a technology oriented journal and/or technology oriented student groups. Based on that criteria, here is the magazine's list of "Top 30" schools: 

1 Suffolk University
2 UC Berkeley School of Law
3 Arizona State University
4 Santa Clara Law
5 University of Colorado
6 Emory University School of Law
