Chicago-Kent was recently listed as one of the 13 Top Law Schools Teaching Law Practice Technology. The list cited Prof. Staudt’s Center for Access to Justice & Technology as a primary reason for including us. Through programs like its Justice and Technology Practicum, the Center provides a great opportunity to learn legal technology skills.
But are these skills really important for landing law jobs? The American Lawyer published a story recently about a major legal client who saved money by testing members of the law firm it hired to be sure they had mastered certain basic technology skills. In all, 9 firms were tested, and all failed. Lesson learned: technology skills matter. What skills would you like to see taught at Chicago-Kent?
