An Industry Wide Discussion: Legal Technology Language, for All

When:  Sep 26, 2023 from 12:00 to 13:00 (ET)


We are planning to bring together law librarians and other members who work with legal technology in firm, court and academic communities to discuss starting to speak the “same language” around legal technology competency throughout the multiple roles and departments within the organization for a virtual discussion on September 26th @ 12 pm eastern.

Different roles and positions have differing needs for their user base in regards to legal technology competency, and to effectively encourage an organization-based standard, we all need to speak the same language. Let’s start with the basics and make sure we are all on the same page regarding what each different role requires for legal technology competency of the user base! Trainers, IT Departments, KM Professionals, Change Management Experts and more welcome!

This session will focus on the essentials regarding legal technology competency – defining competency and speaking the same language. We will delve into the distinction for competency requirements between:

· Legal specific technology

· General technology (navigating systems)

· Organization types (firms versus schools versus courts)

Starting these conversations will better allow law librarians to communicate the technology skills and efforts within their institutions, while simultaneously gathering insight on how to better understand and collaborate with others in technology informed roles across their legal institutions.
