    Research output: Contribution to conferenceAbstractpeer-review


    The legal profession has long been entrenched in tradition, operating with established rules and customs that have persisted for generations. However, there is a stark contrast in the current landscape as law practices face immediate pressure to undergo a significant digital transformation. The widespread adoption of technology has become an integral part of the legal system, whether lawyers like it or not.

    Our work aims to explore how digital technology can revolutionise legal education. The intersection of law and technology presents unique challenges and unprecedented opportunities. Emerging fields such as digital forensics, blockchain technology, and the rapid advancement of artificial intelligence require new strategies and approaches to educate and prepare the next generation of lawyers.

    We conducted a pilot study to develop a new model of learning that cultivates these necessary skills for future lawyers. Our goal is to embrace the digital era and equip law students with the expertise and adaptability needed to thrive in this evolving landscape.
