National Society for Legal Technology Welcomes 125th School
NSLT Legal Technology Certificate aids student tech competency
LOS ANGELES, CA, Feb. 18, 2019— The National Society for Legal Technology (NSLT) today announces that The Notre Dame Law School has become the 125th legal academic institution to utilize NSLT’s Legal Technology Certificate as classroom curriculum.
Notre Dame Law School will integrate the organization’s Legal Technology Certificate training, which is done through an interactive, learning portal that provides hands-on software tutorials rather than following an outdated model of learning software from a textbook. At the conclusion of their semester, students will be eligible to receive NSLT Legal Technology Certificate.
“Legal employers are pushing for greater technology competency, and academic institutions are responding in kind by incorporating our system,” noted NSLT President and CEO Douglas Lusk. “Students who follow this curriculum graduate with real-world, practical knowledge of legal technologies that increases productivity to employers, reduces training time and makes for a more attractive hiring candidate.”
Across all 125 schools using NSLT, students are trained to use case management, document management, time and billing and other critical software programs for the legal environment including popular programs such as Clio, NetDocuments and TrialDirector, among others.
“Many of these institutions don’t have the budget or the expertise to offer all of these software programs to students on their own,” Lusk said. “National Society for Legal Technology is able to provide the access and training otherwise unavailable to these schools and their students.”
NSLT’s Legal Technology Certificate also goes beyond classroom training and is used by individual students, law firms and practicing lawyers.
National Society for Legal Technology (NSLT) is dedicated to helping students and legal professionals learn about and explore legal technology software programs that are essential to today’s legal workplace. NSLT members have access to the latest information, interactive training tutorials and legal software programs, and can also complete exclusive interactive tutorials and testing toward earning a Legal Technology Certificate.
