eLawyering is doing legal work – not just marketing it – over the Web. Pioneering practitioners have found dramatic new ways to communicate and collaborate with clients and other lawyers, produce documents, settle disputes, interact with courts, and manage legal knowledge. There are exciting initiatives underway now that deserve attention by all lawyers – present and future.
The legal profession is being disrupted from without and from within. To be successful in the coming era, lawyers will need to know how to practice over the Web, manage client relationships in cyberspace, and offer “virtual” legal services.
Come hear about the knowledge and skills you need to prosper in the years ahead and the new legal technology and law practice management courses to be offered by the Center for Legal Technology at Florida Coastal School of Law.
This is a 35 minute presentation on the Center’s Program and how its courses lead to new careers preparing students for 21st century law practice. There will be the opportunity for students to ask questions about the Center and the courses.
