Law School 2.0: Legal Education for A Digital Age

Professor David Thomson authored Law School 2.0, a book about how technology can play an important role in facilitating change in legal education. The book describes how this storm of a generational change both should and will transform the face of legal education as we know it today. It covers the new ways students learn, the pedagogical shifts that are occurring inside and outside the classroom, a new breed of hybrid textbooks that will appear, and effective new methods of active, interactive, and hypertextual learning. Most important, this book describes simple ways in which teachers can harness this shift to better prepare law students now for the practice of law tomorrow.
