INTRODUCTION: THE IIT CENTER FOR LAW AND COMPUTERS

In 1983, Illinois Institute of Technology (IIT) Chicago-Kent College of Law established the IIT Center for Law and Computers to prepare students to meet the challenges of an increasingly automated legal profession. The Center was established to do research and to educate law students and lawyers about the application of computers to improve the study and practice of law.

Since 1984, IIT Chicago-Kent College of Law has offered an aggressive program of computer instruction to all entering first-year students. To support this educational mission, the Center installed seventy microcomputers in three separate laboratories for student use. Part II of this chapter presents some of the uses of computers and automated practice systems in the curriculum at IIT Chicago-Kent. A short example of student work product using FlexPractice is also presented there.

The Center also offers extensive educational programs for lawyers in a series of National Institutes cosponsored by the American Bar Association (ABA). On November 18, 1988, the Center, the ABA, and the First National Bank of Chicago presented a National Institute exclusively devoted to the use of automated practice systems entitled "Personal Computing Strategies for Lawyers: Computers as Your Expert Partners." The Center also offers National Institutes called "Personal Computers for Lawyers" that are designed to introduce lawyers to computers by offering hands-on training in the Center's three computer labs.
