The course regularly earns glowing praise in student evaluations.
Like everything else in society, lawyering has been changed by technology. This course will take you beyond your current thinking about how you use computers, tablets, and smartphones in your life as a student and will give you insight into the ethical implications they present to a practicing attorney. You’ll have hands-on practice with a case management system. Shannon Kemen and Ken Hirsh lead the class, which is well-rated in student evaluations.
