Book Description

During the coming decades, the digital revolution that has transformed so much of our world will transform legal education as well. The digital production and distribution of course materials will powerfully affect both the content and the way materials are used in the classroom and library. This collection of essays by leading legal scholars in various fields explores three aspects of this coming transformation. The first set of essays discusses the way digital materials will be created and how they will change concepts of authorship as well as methods of production and distribution. The second set explores the impact of digital materials on law school classrooms and law libraries and the third set considers the potential transformation of the curriculum that the materials are likely to produce. Taken together, these essays provide a guide to momentous changes that every legal teacher and scholar needs to understand.

More About the Author

Edward Rubin is University Professor of Law and Political Science at Vanderbilt University. He writes about modern government and society. The central theme of his work is that the administrative state is a practical necessity and a democratically chosen policy that has prevailed in Western nations for more than a century. He wants people to understand how it functions, how we can improve it, and how this momentous change in the way we govern ourselves affects the way we think about law and politics and the way we decide what is moral or immoral.
Born in Brooklyn, N.Y., Rubin received his undergraduate degree from Princeton University and law degree from Yale Law School. After clerking for Judge Jon Newman on the Court of Appeals for the Second Circuit and practicing entertainment law at Paul, Weiss, Rifkind, Wharton and Garrison, Rubin joined the law faculty of the University of California, Berkeley and then the University of Pennsylvania. Dean of Vanderbilt Law School until 2009, Rubin continues to teach and write at Vanderbilt and has served as a consultant to the People's Republic of China and a member of various professional associations.
