App design as emerging skill for legal profession?
Legal information has been accessed electronically for decades, but how many legal professionals have technical skills in designing tools for organising or delivering information resources? The Melbourne Law School offers a unit called Law Apps [PDF unit guide] in which students design apps that deliver advice for common legal problems. A design competition is also part of the project, as described in this press release. Perhaps this type of skill will become more prevalent in legal education in the future?
