NYLS "Certificate of Mastery in Law Practice Technology"
New York Law School is launching a certificate program for mastery of law practice technology (free registration required). Among the topics that students can study in the program include:
"• Creation of a complex Web site or blog;
• Electronic discovery/evidence analysis;
• Case-mapping software creation;
• Use of audio, video and graphics tools in electronic courtroom presentation;
• Document assembly software creation;
• Cross-firm online deal room systems creation;
• Software creation for electronic licensing, corporate governance and practice management;
• Online dispute resolution;
• Bringing governmental institutions online"
This seems like a pretty good idea. A lot of practitioner time is being spent on non-substantive technology issues, and it will help to have law schools provide richer training on these topics. Kudos to NYLS for spotting the opportunity.
