As many lawyers continue to work remotely, more law school students are signing up for legal tech courses to enhance their abilities in an rapidly evolving job market, law schools told Legaltech News. But in a remote environment, legal tech courses are facing new engagement and tech hurdles unique to a digital landscape.

To be sure, law schools have previously offered legal tech courses to prepare students for an evolving job market that requires business and technology skills traditionally not taught in classrooms. However, COVID-19 may represent a new chapter for legal professionals as more lawyers finally embrace technology and efficiency, said Suffolk University Law School assistant dean of innovation, strategic initiatives and distance education Gabriel Teninbaum.
