Hofstra Law will be hosting its first Legal Tech Boot Camp on Oct. 6 at the Law School. This single-day educational and networking experience will focus on the role of technology in the practice of law and the professional opportunities available to those with the skills and interest to engage with legal tech.

The inaugural event is designed for current Hofstra Law students and a select group of alumni facilitators, with the goal of examining the increasing role of technology in the practice of law and the types of technology used in practice, as well as understanding and identifying the skills attendees should develop to prepare for current and future legal practice. Panel topics include:

• Analytics & E-Discovery

• Applied Cognitive Computing and Artificial Intelligence: How Machines Learn to “Read” the Law

• Blockchain and Its Implications for Legal Practice

• Data Security & the Internet of Things

• Law, Technology and Access to Justice

• Tech Fluency & the Legal Tech Landscape

The Legal Tech Boot Camp is part of a larger initiative at Hofstra Law to provide both curricular and extracurricular opportunities for students to develop expertise in the area of legal technology. The Law School hopes to expand future offerings to include all interested alumni and members of the local bench and bar.
