JURIST Editor-in-Chief Bernard Hibbitts on the Technology of Law

The most recent issue of Law Library Journal has an article by Bernard J. Hibbitts on The Technology of Law.

Hibbitts teaches law at the University of Pittsburgh School of Law and is the Editor-in-Chief of the legal news site JURIST:

"Professor Hibbitts argues that contemporary fascination with the law of technology has led us to overlook the fundamental impact of the 'technology of law,' and offers suggestions for creating 'neterate' lawyers more comfortable and conversant with technology itself. He describes how the legal news service JURIST implements many of these suggestions and provides a unique learning experience for its law student staffers."

The essay is adapted from his plenary address at the 2009 annual conference of the Canadian Association of Law Libraries, May 26, 2009, in Halifax, Nova Scotia.
