Pandemic Raises the Relevance of Legal Technology LL.M.s

The pandemic has proven that technology is not optional for lawyers; it’s a necessity. Alejandro Touriño, Co-Director of the Master in Legal Tech, explains why in this article published by LLM Guide.

Lawyers have always been perceived as reluctant to adopt technology, with seriousness and personal confidence playing a key role in the very traditional profession. However, the pandemic has proven that technology is not optional for lawyers; it’s a necessity.

The pandemic is likely to increase reliance on legal technology to provide clients with a service comparable to that offered before coronavirus. This involves the use of video conferencing and other online collaboration tools, but there will also be a greater need for law-specific technologies such as machine learning and artificial intelligence.

This has also raised the relevance of legal technology in the LL.M. curriculum. Madrid’s IE Law School, for instance, has designed an entire Master in Legal Tech degree. Students on the course embrace the newest technologies in the legal industry, as well as the management and business trends. The new LL.M. also has a specialization in intellectual property and legal technology, where students explore how key tech developments intersect with the law.
