New Skills, New Learning

Gene Koo (fellow from Harvard Law)’s  white paper picked up a small mention on the Chronicle of Higher Education’s “Wired Campus” blog, summarized as “Lawyers want technology training” Also, the Boston Globe published his letter today.

 Related somewhat is that one of the professors here who teaches Trial Practice II (Criminal Trial Skills) is requiring her students to use technology for their opening or closing statements.

        As result, so far 5 students used powerpoint and three students used a document camera.  As they had heard recently, jurors today, most of them being baby boomers, receive and process information through visual media. Therefore, every trial lawyer must learn how to use technology to engage the jury.   This assignment will prepare them to practicre law in the real world.
