Legal practice and legal education both face disruptive change. Much of how and what we do as lawyers and how and what we have taught as legal educators is under scrutiny. Legal technology is an important factor in driving these challenges. Law schools reform their curriculums law and technology is an area that is ripe for expansion in our teaching. It also provides ample room for scholarly examination. Creating opportunities for learning how technology is shaping legal practice should be a priority for any school looking to provide a useful education for the lawyers of the present, let alone the future.

Oliver R. Goodenough is currently a fellow at The Berkman Center for Internet and Society at Harvard Law School, a Professor of Law at the Vermont Law School and an Adjuct Professor at Thayer School of Engineering at Dartmouth College RSVP Required. more information on our website>

Douglas Rushkoff on Present Shock: When Everything Happens Now

berkman

The always-on, simultaneous society in which we have found ourselves has altered our relationship to culture, media, news, politics, economics, and power. We are living in a digital temporal landscape, but instead of exploiting its asynchronous biases, we are misguidedly attempting to extend the time-is-money agenda of the Industrial Age into the current era. The result is a disorienting and dehumanizing mess, where the zombie apocalypse is more comforting to imagine than more of the same. It needn't be this way. Douglas Rushkoff -- teacher, documentarian, journalist, and author -- discusses insights from his recent book "Present Shock: When Everything Happens Now" with David Weinberger and a live audience at Harvard. video/audio on our website>
