LAW STUDENTS – THINK SMART ! Think Legal Knowledge Engineering – A top tip by Legaleaglemhm


Legal Knowledge Engineering

As you find yourselves swamped in the every day detail of legal study from reading cases, discussing statute and case law at University to hunting for a traineeship it is difficult to have vision way infront of you to the career that lies ahead .I want to give you a piece of advice which I hope gives you an advantage.

 

What you will not find (YET) during your time at University is any mention of Legal Knowledge engineering. What is it ?

 

Many Law graduates struggle to find a traineeship on completion of their legal studies and this adds even more pressure to final year and diploma students.

 

A new and innovative legal role is emerging within the legal profession.

 

The Legal Knowledge Engineer has emerged as a new viable option for Law graduates around the world. The ‘switched on’ law students of 2014 need to be watching as the role develops over the next few years.

 

My name is Michelle Hynes LL.B (Hons) DipLP and I am Legal Process Engineer at Forward thinking Law firm Inksters .

 

I want to leave you with three points to think about.

 

  1. The future of Law using technology
  2. The competing legal service providers of the future
  3. The Data we gather every day in the practice of Law.

 

Legal Knowledge Engineering is new. It is unchartered teratory, it is exciting.

The next generation of lawyers can influence how it is shapes, measured, performed and evaluated.

A legal Knowledge engineer is a Lawyer ( of a new kind). There will be many variations from Legal Architect, Legal Process Engineer, Legal Project Manager.

 

Thinks Smart, Think ahead, Think Legal Knowledge Engineering.
