Abstract

This paper argues that contemporary fascination with the law of technology (IP, cyberlaw, etc.) has led us to overlook the fundamental impact of the "technology of law," and offers suggestions for creating "neterate" lawyers more comfortable with and cognizant of technology itself. The author describes how the legal news service JURIST implements many of these suggestions and provides a unique learning experience for its law student staffers.

Keywords: law, technology of law, new technology, Internet, legal education, neteracy, JURIST, digital literacy, law librarians, legal teaching, legal technology, pedagogy
