Law and tech: Embracing the paradigm shift

Research output: Contribution to conferencePresentationResearch

Abstract

Technology is affecting—some might say ‘disrupting’—the practice and the text of law. As a consequence, law schools are working to equip their students to work in a rapidly changing profession. In doing so, and as part of education more broadly, educators are embracing new technologies in their teaching. All of this presupposes the capacity of legal academics to embrace ‘technology and law’ and educational technologies. Yet just how prepared is the academy for the seismic shift required? This paper identifies the importance of academics’ ‘digital literacy’ and its component skills. It outlines the core competencies required by legal academics in particular, to equip them to teach our law students to enter the workforce of the present and the future and three simple steps that legal academics – and professional staff – might take to develop the necessary skill set.
