Maine Law to offer “Technology for Lawyers” course in January

Dec. 19, 2012

PORTLAND, Maine – The University of Maine School of Law will present a course, “Technology for Lawyers,” on Jan. 10-11, at the law school.

Attorneys are invited to register for this course for CLE credit. The course will be presented by Andrew Clearwater, Law and Technology Fellow at Maine Law, and Tim Brooks, a local attorney, entrepreneur and web expert.

Here is the course description: “Sometimes it takes more than knowledge of the law to understand how to advise a client. The Technology for Lawyers course aims to introduce the necessary technical basics of computing and the Internet. If you use a computer everyday but don’t understand how it works or how it communicates over networks, this course will fill in the gaps and explain how it all works and why. The course is designed to prepare students and lawyers for dealing with specific areas of the law (such as information privacy, cyber security, computer crimes, and intellectual property) that frequently require an ability to understand basic information technology concepts and often involve communicating with technology-savvy clients.”

Clearwater is a key member of Maine Law’s Center for Law and Innovation, which offers one of the country’s top programs in information privacy. The Center hosts an annual conference and a two-week Information Privacy Institute, the nation’s first for-credit summer program in information privacy.
