Law Schools, in general, have been slow at adapting modern technologies into their curricula, even though legal technologies exist, and are used to streamline communication, research, and more.

Bryant G. Garth, dean of Southwestern Law School, notes that "Legal education significantly lags the rest of higher education in integrating online learning and other educational technologies into its programs." A recent post, however, from Law Gives reports that a group of legal technologists and academics from schools including University of Miami School of Law, Australian National University College of Law, Chicago-Kent College of Law, the University of the Pacific McGeorge School of Law, and New York Law School are creating law school clinics to fill this void. Apps4Justice institutions will provide instruction in particular for tools designed to, among other things, efficiently generate legal documents and aid pro se litigants.

With more innovation from lawyers, technologists, and educators, we hope to see law schools catch-up with modern technologies, providing a better education applicable for our modern and fast-moving world.
