Associate Dean Bernard J. Hibbitts of the University of Pittsburgh School of Law, and the Publisher and Editor in Chief of JURIST, has published The Technology of Law, 102 Law Library Journal 101 (2010) (Issue No. 1). This article was “adapted from a plenary address given at the 2009 Annual Meeting of the Canadian Association of Law Libraries, May 26, 2009, Halifax, Nova Scotia.” Here is the abstract:
Professor Hibbitts argues that contemporary fascination with the law of technology has led us to overlook the fundamental impact of the “technology of law,” and offers suggestions for creating “neterate” lawyers more comfortable and conversant with technology itself. He describes how the legal news service JURIST implements many of these suggestions and provides a unique learning experience for its law student staffers.
