Ann Priestley’s list of legal MOOCs now enables researchers in the legal community to identify a sizeable number of law-related MOOCs offered by several different providers, and to design studies of them.

The application deadline is 7 July 2013. Here are more details of the grant program: Potential… [read post]

While at the Legal Technology Leadership Summit, I attended the panel entitled “Legal Process Outsourcing and Insourcing.” As I mentioned on Twitter, when I go to conferences I enjoy attending the panels that are most likely to cause pain and suffering among junior attorneys. It’s kind of my thing.Usually, anything involving outsourcing is a good bet to make junior attorneys scream expletives at God before drinking themselves into a stupor. But this panel was surprisingly positive about the… [read post]

Tom Bruce of the Legal Information Institute (LII) has described a new Google Glass legal app, called Signtater, that he and LII personnel Wayne Weibel and Sara Frug have developed, in a new post: The Law of Where I’m Standing, Right Now. According to Tom, the app reads legal citations that are written on objects in the world — such as signs in parks — and then retrieves links to the cited legal resources, from free-access-to-law services including the Legal Information Institute. … [read post]

I’ve now owned the Kindle Fire for close to a month. I’m very impressed with it but there are a few shortcomings as you might expect. As mentioned in the previous review of the Kindle Fire, what you intend to use it for will help determine whether the Fire is right for you, or if you should step up to the iPad. Here’s the primary difference between the two: Fire is for content consumption, the iPad is for both content consumption and content creation. I’ll just come out and say it: from a… [read post]

Todd Sherer: "And what we’re seeing, what the AUTM survey is showing, is that patent budgets are going down. And that’s of concern to me, because everything has to go through that funnel. You can do a lot of research, basic and then applied research and have translational funding, but that technology has to come through the Tech Transfer Office and through the patent budget. So it doesn’t do us a lot of good just to have funding targeted at programs at the front end of that funnel… [read post]

As a first year law student, a handful of things are given to you (at least where I studied): a pre-fabricated schedule, a non-negotiable slate of professors, and a basic history lesson — illustrated through individual cases.  During my first year, the professor I fought with the most was my property law teacher.  Now, I realize that it wasn’t her that I couldn’t accept; it was the implications of the worldview she presented.  She saw “property law” as a construct through which wealthy… [read post]

By:  Steve Dickinson One of China’s primary challenges is fostering technology innovation. The Chinese authorities want China to transform its industrial model from a low value added/low level technology model to the opposite. To combat stagnating economic growth and the threat of energy and resource restraints, government policy is to try to effect this change as quickly as possible. This transformation will require access to cutting edge technologies. If China relies on foreign technology… [read post]

I just finished reading I Am Now an App™ and  Run! Hide! The Lawyers Are Being Replaced By Machines, two excellent articles that address the concern about how the legal industry is being affected by programmers. In short, systems designed to make lawyers’ work more efficient are, post-Internet, being directed outward, toward the client, and this is disrupting (or has a greater potential to disrupt) the attorney-client relationship.1 A computer program with enough analytical power along with a… [read post]

Today is the long-awaited release date of the much-vaunted iPad.  I hesitate to write this next sentence, because I don’t know anyone who lives under a rock.  The iPad is Apple’s latest technological offering to the masses.  I confess to not having read much about the iPad (although I have paid some attention to it) but from where I sit, it looks like Apple’s attempt to create a tool that will do for visual-content consumption what the iPod did for audio-content consumption. Frankly, I… [read post]

SOCRATES. Do you really wish to know the truth of celestial matters? STREPSIADES. Why, truly, if ‘tis possible. SOCRATES. … and to converse with the clouds, who are our genii? STREPSIADES. Without a doubt. SOCRATES. Then be seated on this sacred couch. STREPSIADES. I am seated. SOCRATES. Now take this chaplet. STREPSIADES. Why a chaplet? Alas!
