An invitation to forum on internet & legal education

I'm excited to announce that, as part of the process of exploring the impact of technology and the internet on legal education and training, the Berkman Center is hosting a forum and invite all of you to attend, whether in-person or virtually. (We'll be web-, pod-, and virtual-casting this event). I'll be updating this post as we firm up panel participants and information about how to participate virtually.

(un)Common Knowledge:

Legal education in a networked world

Thursday, December 7
6:00-7:30pm EDT
Austin Hall, Harvard Law School
[ also on Webcast and Second Life -- info coming soon ]

Law schools don’t just educate new lawyers; they house vibrant communities that research, develop, and share legal knowledge. How might law schools take advantage of our increasingly networked environment or use emerging network technologies to foster robust learning communities? Can such communities bridge between the academy and practice?

On the occasion of Harvard Law School’s most significant curriculum revision since the 1870s, join law professors, professional educators, practicing attorneys, and technologists to discuss the coming transformation of legal education.

Panelists

  • Sandy Geller, Executive Vice-President, Practising Law Institute
  • Patrick Hobbs, Dean, Seton Hall Law School
  • Andy Prozes, Global CEO, LexisNexis
  • Jonathan Sablone, Partner, Nixon & Peabody LLP
  • Ronald Staudt, Professor of Law and Associate Vice President for Law, Business and Technology, Chicago-Kent College of Law
  • Martha Stone Wiske, Lecturer, Harvard Graduate School of Education

The discussion will be moderated by Charles Nesson, Professor, Harvard Law School.
