NKU Chase College of Law is celebrating the
Inauguration of the W. Bruce Lunsford Academy for Law, Business + Technology
“Leading Voices of the Future of Law”
Tuesday, September 23, 2014
2 – 5 p.m.
NKU Griffin Hall Rieveschl Digitorium
Noted legal scholars, educators and practitioners led discussions on
– the future of legal education,
– the future of the profession, and
– teaching for the future classroom
Modern law firms are revolutionizing the practice of law. Would-be clients can now utilize home technology to supplement the advice of practitioners, while virtual law firms threaten the twentieth-century Big Law business model. Such changes in the legal profession cannot be ignored by law schools. The discussion focused on the need for creative thinking in the marketplace, including changes to law school curriculum and programming essential for future lawyers to succeed in the modern profession of law.
