Douglas Lusk is the Founder/CEO of theNational Society for Legal Technology(NSLT) and the creator of the Legal Technology Certificate. I think he’s on the cusp of something huge, and he hasn’t even graduated law school yet!
This legal technology training programaddresses a problem that most attorneys struggle with: How do I comply with the new ethical rules requiring competence in technology when there are no resources in my law firm or law school to do so (and without investing in expensive software packages)?
Doug figured it out and, after just one year, his program has been included in the curriculum of over 70 law schools. On top of that, he’s talking to bar associations about finally introducing CLE on software instruction – a much-needed improvement. Doug offers an elegant solution to a growing problem, and I’m excited to see how it develops.
