LAW 0696: Introduction to Technology in Legal Practice
Spring 2021 • Section 01 • CRN 45292

Course Description

Technology used in the legal field is rapidly changing. Being competent in the use of technology is no longer an optional skill. Many states, including Pennsylvania, now require some form of technological competence as part of the Rules of Professional Conduct. This course will give students the foundation needed to use the common technology encountered in legal practice including time keeping, privacy and security, creating and managing secure documents, presentation technology, media literacy, legal analytics, and artificial intelligence. In addition to learning how to understand and evaluate these technologies, students will also get hands-on experience using many of these technologies. Students will also learn how to identify and evaluate any ethical implications related to the use of legal technology.
