Free Online Course on Digital Lawyering and Virtual Law Practice
(CALI) is offering a free online course on digital law practice, primarily for law students and law professors, but anyone can register.
I don't doubt that most law faculty will find these topics to be irrelevant, but its connecting with law students, as over 500 law students have registered nationwide.
For lawyers interested in delivering legal services online, this course would be a good introduction to the subject.
The first session is February 10 at 2-3 EST. Stephanie Kimbro is doing a session on the virtual law office.
Later in the course, Marc Lauritsen is doing a session on document automation, and I am doing a session on “unbundling legal services”.
Here are some of the other sessions:
