Fordham Law was ranked #10 among law schools for legal tech in a list compiled by The National Jurist. The publication recently ranked 30 law schools in legal technology based on several factors:
- the variety and quantity of their tech course offerings, clinics, externships, and labs
- the availability of a specialized degree certificate in technology law or a related LL.M.
- the presence of technology-related journals and student groups at the school
Due to its legal-tech resources for students, Fordham Law surpassed competitor schools such as Harvard Law, NYU, Penn, and others.
It is critical that law students and future attorneys in the 21st century have the proficiency to provide clients with better and more effective legal services. In order to be fully prepared for their careers, they must be competent in using digital tools in research, communication, and practice, whether in litigation, transactional law, or advocacy. The Fordham Law Clinical Program includes an Intellectual Property and Information Law Clinic in addition to 14 other clinics in specialty areas such as Entrepreneurial Law and Legislative and Policy Advocacy. All clinics use an electronic case management system, secure remote access to allow access to cases while in court or on the go, and diverse digital communication platforms with clients and counsel.
Earlier this fall, the Entrepreneurial Law Clinic launched a podcast, Startup LAWnchpad.
