Abstract

The law school curriculum is wholly inadequate to train future lawyers in law practice management and technology. Training in law practice management and law practice technology is a critical solution that will further align the skills that law students must have upon graduation with the employment needs of a radically changing legal market. As legal educators and administrators rethink their law school’s package of educational services, this article will provide guidance. Accordingly, what follows is not a traditional law review article. It is an analysis of a deficiency in one area of the traditional law school curriculum and a proposed solution to fix it.

Keywords: law practice management, law schools, legal technology, technology, lawyers
