Digital Lawyering Program
The School of Law’s Digital Lawyering Program will offer two sessions during the spring 2013 semester. The free program will be taught by adjunct professor Stephanie Kimbro, a national expert on digital lawyering and a 2003 UDSL graduate.
Both sessions in the program allow you six weeks to earn a certificate of completion, which you may feature on your resume and highlight in job interviews. These are not graded courses. You may receive competency based on the completion of a deliverable for the session.
Each session will be conducted through live web conferences on Mondays and Wednesdays from 11:30 a.m.–1 p.m.
Enrollment for each session is limited to 25 participants. Register for either session.
Technology in Law Practice
Technology in Law Practice begins on Wednesday, Jan. 23, and will offer students hands-on experience with a variety of technologies used to produce legal work and manage law practice. The course will focus on developing best practices for using this technology and how it may be used to grow a lawyer’s client base and sustain a successful business. As part of the course, students will develop a basic law office technology use policy.
Social Media and Online Marketing for Lawyers
Social Media and Online Marketing for Lawyers will begin on Monday, March 11. Students will focus on developing best practices for using social media platforms and learn how to use different online marketing tools. Participants will learn how these marketing methods may be used to grow a lawyer’s client base and develop a rich network of other professionals. Students will develop a short social media policy for a law firm.
