According to a recent survey, Canadian law schools are increasingly offering technology-related training. Law schools at institutions such as Dalhousie University, Windsor University, the University of Calgary, and the University of Manitoba, for example, have offered course offerings on topics such as blockchain, artificial intelligence, cybercrime, and app development. With respect to teaching methods, however, UManitoba Communications Officer Christine Mazur reported that students value personal interactions with professors over online training methods, and that students are typically more technology-savvy than their professors. The Lawyer’s Daily adds that the survey results indicated a general acknowledgment that law schools must address how changes in technology present ongoing challenges to the structure of law.
