Abstract

This report identifies the way in which Australian law schools represent themselves as dealing with technology in the law. It canvasses four components considered relevant to establishing how law schools represent their engagement with technology in legal education. Through a desktop, survey of law school websites, it canvasses four components considered relevant to establishing how law schools represent their engagement with technology in legal education:

• Current identifiably technology-based subject offerings in the LLB and JD;

• Technology-specific extra-curricular programs within the law school;

• Graduate attributes embracing digital capabilities (howsoever styled);

• Research programs explicitly embracing law and technology or related themes.

Keywords: technology, legal education, law school, disruption
