OU College of Law
Law students are often eager to embrace the wide range of legal technology tools that are available because they know that they can help them succeed in school and beyond. But educators have varying attitudes toward the use of technology in their classrooms. Kenton Brice, Director of Technology Innovation at University of Oklahoma College of Law, gives us a firsthand look at the use of technology in legal education. A former lawyer who went back to school for his master’s degree in library science, Brice teaches practical technology to students. In our case study, he talks about his role preparing the next generation of lawyers for the innovative technologies that could be used in the next decade of the legal profession. He says that while he and his colleagues introduce new tools to students and encourage them to use them, they also limit technology use in the classroom at times so that students can master basic research and writing skills.
“This felt more like a machine learning the ideas and expressions in the text. And that was what I really liked about it. What I tell my students is when you’re doing a keyword search, you’ve got to come up with a bunch of synonyms for the main idea to make sure you’re finding the right cases, and EVA was able to learn that faster using natural language search. Really impressive.”
