Beginning February 1, the Law Library's Legal Tech Institute will offer Hands-On Legal Tech Training every Thursday at 2 p.m. in our new Legal Tech Lab. Each session will focus on practical tech skills needed for legal work. Participants are encouraged to bring a laptop or use a Law Library training laptop in order to get the full benefit of experiential learning.
The Texas Bar Foundation awarded a generous grant to the Harris County Law Library to expand its Legal Tech Institute. The funding has provided computers and software for those in attendance to use during Legal Tech Institute training sessions, including the Hands-on Legal Tech Training Program, a new opportunity for applied, practical learning. Designed for attorneys, self-represented litigants, and members of the public, the LTI Hands-On Legal Tech Training program will help attendees understand and become more proficient at using legal tech, thereby improving their access to the court system and their ability to accomplish legal tasks.
In fall 2016, Harris County Law Library launched the Legal Tech Institute, an ongoing series of free learning opportunities focused on using technology for more efficient legal work. Since October of that year, a new learning session has been offered each month with content designed for a diverse audience of legal tech beginners and experts. Microsoft Word for Lawyers, Excel Essentials, and Finding & Formatting Legal Forms are just a few of the courses that LTI has presented so far. Representatives from Westlaw and Lexis have rounded out the schedule with regular Vendor Visits. LTI continues to grow with an ever-expanding menu of learning opportunities both in person and online. Earn CLE credit and improve your tech proficiency by visiting the LTI webpage where on-demand recordings of previous events are available.
