CLS Legal Tech is a student-led organization that aims to centralize and develop education, community and innovation in the field of legal technology.
CLS Legal Tech will focus on providing students with opportunities to learn about various sectors within legal tech (and the legal services market as a whole) through on-campus and off-campus opportunities that draw on the expertise of academics, students and industry professionals, leveraging the robust Columbia network and industry contacts within this space.
CLS Legal Tech will focus on making Columbia University the hub for legal technology by connecting students, faculty, alumni and other industry professionals to foster a true community.
CLS Legal Tech will build on Columbia’s multi-school resources and support students involved in innovation in the sector, whether they are starting their own company or striving to bring innovation to established companies through intrapreneurship.
In the future, the business of law will require fewer general support staff members, junior lawyers, and generalists — and more legal technicians and project managers. Accordingly, law schools may need to offer courses on legal tech and case-management processes.
23 percent of a lawyer’s job can be automated.
