The Duke Center on Law & Technology prepares students for the growing landscape of technology in the legal profession through collaboration with Duke’s innovative and entrepreneurial initiatives, engagement with local entrepreneurs, and by providing educational opportunities at the intersection of technology and the law.
“The law, from the way that large firms do business, to the way that courts operate, to the basic knowledge needed to aid certain clients, is increasingly tech-driven. So, from an educational perspective and a career-preparation perspective, we are positioning Duke Law to be a leader at the intersection of technology and the law.”
