Abstract:     
In this article, Professor Newman discusses both how today's law students learn through technology, and also theories of personality types and learning styles. She reviews the few existing empirical studies on the subject. Next, she discusses course Web sites and how they can support not replace, what happens in the traditional law school classroom. Then, she discusses how Pace Law School implemented TWEN course Web pages, and discuss the results of a survey of TWEN usage by faculty members at Pace University School of Law. The survey indicates that although TWEN course Web sites have improved communication between students and professors and facilitated course administration, it is not yet certain that course Web sites influence how well professors teach and how well law students learn. She concludes with a series of recommendations for implementing course management software at law schools.
