Legal Education: Disruption and Transformation

Activity: Talk or presentationInvited talk


Professor James examines the implications for law schools of one of the biggest challenges presently confronting the legal profession: digital disruption. He explains the nature of digital disruption, focusing upon technological innovation in the areas of communication, data analysis and artificial intelligence, and describes how digital disruption is transforming the delivery of legal services and access to legal expertise. He then explores the implications of this disruption for legal education, and the changes that must occur to how and what law schools teach. He concludes that law schools, like legal professionals, must radically transform themselves in order to respond to digital disruption.
