Future law school. What does it look like? — from forbes.com by Valentin Pivovarov


Can technology upgrade legal education?
If we are promoting a society where everyone feels enfranchised, we must come up with ways to democratize access to legal education.

To speak about access to legal education in the US, only a small sliver of American citizens can afford to get a legal education at a university. Even part-time degree programs typically extend over four years and require three to four nights a week of extensive study time on top of lengthy commutes.

Also, a significant percentage of the country’s population doesn’t live within commuting distance of a law school.


We are at the beginning of a gigantic world trend in law schools and universities, investing major resources in technological solutions to ensure that future lawyers will exhibit competitiveness and a high level of training. Already, at least 10% of US law schools teach knowledge related to the use of AI. Their number will increase as law schools begin to more effectively implement technologies in the practice of applying current legislation.
