Technology in the Practice of Law Skills Series – Video Archive

The explosion of technological tools available to make the practice of law more efficient is outpaced only by the need for lawyers to identify, acquire, and integrate technology into their courtroom and office settings.  In order to provide training on client management software, “paperless” office procedures, electronic court document filing systems, and other cutting-edge topics, the UM Clinical Programs and the Grisham Law Library have partnered for the past three years to bring speakers to the law school from as many areas of expertise as possible through the “Technology & the Practice of Law Skills Series.”  This archive of the speaker series is offered to assist both law students and practitioners to identify existing methods of doing business, along with continuing advancements that will change the landscape of traditional “paper-based” practice forever.
