That is most definitely the case when it comes to teaching the next generation of lawyers. Today, legal studies aren’t just a case of reading complicated legal books — there’s an increasing number of digital tools in use, and it’s likely that this trend will only grow in the future. The shift has allowed for a more dynamic, responsive, and varied teaching method.
