Computers, Society and Law: The Role of Legal Education. Proceedings of the AFIPS/Stanford Conference, June 25-27, 1973.
Leininger, Joseph E., Ed.; Gilchrist, Bruce, Ed.
At a conference held at Stanford University in June 1973, 91 lawyers, law teachers, computer scientists, and other scholars gave presentations on major, computer-related developments and issues affecting the law. Following an introduction into some general aspects of computers, their role in society, and their potential for legal education, a series of papers was presented which focused upon three broad topics: (1) legal problems of computer use and production, (2) computer application to legal research and analysis, and (3) the role of law schools in advancing scholarship on issues of computers and society. Special attention was also given to potential curricular applications of computer technology in legal education. The appendixes include a description of programs currently sponsored by the National Science Foundation on computers and the law, selected papers from the small group workshops, and a list of steering committee and conference participants.
