Abstract:     
Legal practice and legal education are both at challenging inflection points, where much of how and what we do as lawyers and how and what we have taught as legal educators comes under scrutiny. Legal technology is an important factor in driving the challenges we face. As we reform our curriculums in this moment of change, we should be guided by considerations of value added, values added, and economic sustainability. Law and technology is an area that is ripe for expansion in our teaching, with the possibility of satisfying all of these criteria. It also provides ample room for scholarly examination. Creating opportunities for learning how technology is shaping legal practice should be a priority for any school looking to provide a useful education for the lawyers of the present, let alone the future.
