The Future of ASP: Using Technology to Democratize Legal Education

Description

Most law schools express the important goal of diversifying the legal profession, but that means accepting a diverse set of law students as well. Law students today are different from those of past generations - there are more women, more students of color, more who are married, more who have children, more who are working during law school, and more first-generation students. As our students become more diverse, we have to consider how we make law school, and by the extension the legal profession, more accessible to these diverse students. In this session, academic success (ASP) experts Susan Landrum and Laura Mott explore some of the ways that technology can continue to be leveraged post-pandemic to make law school more accessible and actively engage students in partnering in that process. Although Susan and Laura will use some examples from ASP courses and programming to illustrate their points, their examples are broadly applicable to all parts of the law school curriculum and non-curricular law school programming. 

  • This session is designed for attendees with all levels of knowledge.
  • This session seeks to inspire legal educators to continue to look for ways to make legal education more accessible to law students as well as how to make students collaborators in that process.
