Exploring and Understanding the Evolving Technological Trends in Legal Practice In order to Identify and Address any Gaps in Legal Education

Northumbria University


This is a collaborative research project into the use of technology in legal education and practice, which is being funded by BILETA, and which will feed into research and advice being requested by the Ministry of Justice.

As part of this project, we are keen to investigate and learn more about the use of technology, as well as the emerging trends posed by technology, in legal practice. Using the findings from this initial investigation, we will explore how law schools are addressing the needs and expectations of legal practice in supporting and preparing students for 'digital lawyering'.

At the event, we will be outlining and discussing the research project to invited guests and Law School colleagues, asking for feedback and thoughts on the project, and asking them to complete a short questionnaire.

Catering will be provided at the event.


The event is free to attend but booking is required
