From Decoder Rings to Deep Fakes: Translating Complex Technologies for Legal Education

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule, view media, leave feedback and see who's attending!

"Technological developments are disrupting the practice of law" is a common refrain, but the last few years has seen some particularly complex pieces of technology become the hot new thing in legal tech. This session will look at blockchain, quantum computing, artificial intelligence, and "Deep Fakes" as examples of how instructors can stay abreast of technological developments and inform themselves about their impacts in the legal profession. Then we will look at how to translate the complexities and jargon of these examples into lessons for for-credit courses, one-off informational sessions, or meetings with stakeholders.

Learning outcomes:

  • Participants will be able to discuss and practice methods for staying up to date and informed about legal technology.
  • Participants will be able to identify the elements to include and the steps to be taken to translate complex technologies into easy to understand lessons. A handout summarizing key takeaways will be provided by the presenters.
