As a first year law student, the Future of Law Lab has allowed me to participate in many incredible events that have been a truly refreshing addition to my the learning I receive in my courses. In my first semester, I got the chance to hear from some exceptional and engaging speakers, learned about the impact of AI and other technology in the legal field, and was exposed to fascinating non-traditional legal career paths.
It is exciting that the Future of Law Lab seeks to create more interdisciplinary spaces at the law school where law students can learn alongside and innovate with students from different disciplines and backgrounds, like computer science, engineering, business and design. This appears more crucial than ever, as the lawyers of the 21st-century need to be more agile and capable of thriving in diverse, and perhaps, non-conventional teams and in novel environments.
