SEPTEMBER/OCTOBER 2018 | AALL SPECTRUM 23 A "renaissance" is often described as a cultural rebirth, a movement ushering in a modern age and leaving behind the old ways of doing things. There is every indication that we are entering a technology-driven renaissance in the legal profession. Artificial intelligence (AI), "big data," document automation, e-discovery tools, cloud-based case management systems, and communication and collaboration tools are just a few of the ways that technology is transforming the practice of law in the twenty-first century. Certainly, technology has played a key role in the practice of law for almost 50 years. However, there are several indicators that technology is becoming an increasingly important part of law practice. Thirty-one states now require lawyers to understand the risks and benefits of technology in accordance with Comment 8 of Rule 1.1 of the American Bar Association LET'S TEACH OUR STUDENTS LEGAL TECHNOLOGY... BUT WHAT SHOULD WE INCLUDE? Five law library directors who teach legal technology share their thoughts and advice. BY RANDY J. DIAMOND, DARIN FOX, KENNETH J. HIRSH, HEIDI FROSTESTAD KUEHL & MICHAEL ROBAK
