“Law schools tend to treat technology in one of two ways: as a force that might change the laws on the books, or as a force that might change the practice of the law,” said Andrew Keane Woods, conference organizer and associate professor at University of Arizona Law. “We want to integrate these two inquiries under one heading as we continue researching the future of the law and legal education.”
