The L&E Clinic staff offers an experiential learning course focused on legal technologies.
Each student in the course will be placed in a startup legal technology company. In their placements, students will use their legal knowledge and reasoning skills as part of cross functional teams to help in the development of tools for the next generation of lawyers.
The program will also include a classroom component with speakers from the legal tech industry and academics interested in legal technology, technology generally and the future of business and the legal profession.
Topics will include:
- ethical use of artificial intelligence in industry and government,
- concept of “justice as a service,”
- how traditional justice systems could be delivered through technology, and
- blockchain technology and “smart” contracts.
The course is called "Implications of Tech on Business & Law" and is one of the topics listed within Course 940: Law & Contemporary Problems.
