LawTech Lab Opens
Cleveland-Marshall College of Law has launched an innovative new tech lab in partnership with Technology Concepts & Design, Inc. (TCDI), a pioneer in legal technology. The learning space introduces law students, alumni and lawyers to practical technology, prepares them to succeed in the new legal landscape and provides cutting-edge legal services to TCDI clients.
The lab is housed in a dedicated and secure on-campus center within the law school library. Students and local contract attorneys use TCDI’s review platform, CVLynx, to deliver quality, time-saving legal services. Using a blended approach of technology and process, attorney project managers oversee all tasks performed in the center and work under the direct supervision and guidance of outside or in-house counsel.
