The Rise of the Law School Labs

Today at the Court Technology Conference, I was lucky to co-present with Dan Jackson of NuLaw Lab of Northeastern University, and Christopher Griffin of the A2J Lab at Harvard Law School.  Our topic was: what can courts learn from law schools about user experience and innovation?

Dan did an excellent job contextualizing this challenge, explaining how the ‘law school lab’ has roots as far back as law schools go — though it is a relatively new thing in modern law schools. Here’s a sketch I made of some of the great points that Dan made, that captures the NuLaw Lab‘s approach, and what he’s learned while running the lab over the past five years.
