“Lawyers that won’t be able to use technology in the future might be putting their clients at a disadvantage to the degree that it might be considered malpractice”

On this episode of LegalMeets we meet Dr. Roland Vogl, a lawyer, scholar and media entrepreneur responsible for Stanford University’s CodeX program, a joint collaboration between their law school and computer science department.
