Chronicle: Can technology save legal education?

The Chronicle of Higher Education's Wired Campus blog has a post titled "Can technology save legal education?" about the recent Future Ed 3 conference attended by law-school deans and faculty.  One of the deans is quoted as saying that “Legal education significantly lags the rest of higher education in integrating online learning and other educational technologies into its programs.”  At the conference, the Apps for Justice proposal  (created by a team  including Professor Ronald W. Staudt of the Chicago-Kent College of Law and John Mayer, Executive Director of CALI) to “expand programs in which [law] students write software as part of their [legal] education,” was recognized  with an award.  The proposal includes further development of law-school clinical programs that use the A2J Author software created by CALI and the Center for Access to Justice and Technology.
