Most state bars now have a technology requirement, and law firms often expect millennial lawyers to have strong proficiency with technology tools, from Microsoft Office on up. Why, then, are these programs often deprioritized at law schools and technology courses often under-enrolled? How do we convince students and the people who advise them on the steps for their careers to improve their technology skills? This virtual roundtable will discuss how to persuade students and other stakeholders of the importance of technology training and what kind of training is most successful.
Please come with your questions, stories and advice! We would love to hear from you to make this roundtable not only lively but informative from many different perspectives.
