Harvard Law School – The Future of Legal Education

This is a very interesting panel discussion at Harvard Law School focussing on the question how to develop impactful interventions in the law school ciriculum around coding and the use of technolog. It particularly addresses the question, What should law schools teach law students about technology and innovation? This encompasses narrower questions, such as the following: Should we teach law students to write code? How should we use technology in service of teaching subjects not substantively related to tech? How do we best equip newly minted lawyers to grapple with complex legal, ethical, and business issues associated with rapid technological advances? This session teases out various approaches to educating students about technology and coding–and teaching approaches, more broadly, that use technology and code. The session focuses specifically on the relationships between law, legal analysis and argument, technology infrastructure and policy, and the writing and understanding of computer code.
