Most law school students today have grown up surrounded by technology in the home and classroom. They have cell phones, laptops, PDAs, and BlackBerry devices. They send text messages, instant message, and have profiles on Facebook and other social networking websites. These trends mean law schools have had to address growing technology needs, and our faculty has had to integrate technology into course instruction.

This article uses the University of Louisville's Louis D. Brandeis School of Law to provide an example of some of the technologies that law school students are encountering in their studies today and also the skills they've developed and will bring to the legal profession.

Keywords: information technology, law school, students, education, classroom technology
