Evolving KM Episode 7: Future Legal Technologists - The SEC Compliance Student Team
Nov 28th, 2018 by ilta
Welcome to Evolving KM, a podcast where we discuss how knowledge management is progressing and the impact that's having on KM professionals. In each episode, we interview people who have worked in or on the periphery of KM and get their perspectives on how this profession is evolving to meet the shifting demands of legal service delivery.
We hope you enjoy this episode!
Our guests in this episode are third-year law students from Michigan State University College of Law, with whom we worked on a class project to develop an app related to SEC reporting compliance (specifically the Form 10-K). Their class in the Legal RnD program related to the intersection of law, process improvement and technology. We talk about the students' experiences and the skills they learned that will translate to their future careers, whether as lawyers or legal technologists.
