Comment: Four of the above articles concern teaching law and technology, a subject which is becoming very important in legal education. Two points. First, law schools should encourage potential applicants to get a good technology background in college, so that law schools don't have to waste time teaching the basics. Second, as I show in my post, while teaching technology is important for law schools, they should be critical concerning the tools they teach.
