New York Law School Announces Online Legal Learning Alliance with Lawline.com

New York Law School and Lawline.com will join forces to bring online legal learning resources to law students and others who want to learn about law.

NEW YORK, April 8, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- New York Law School (NYLS) and Lawline.com today announced an alliance to bring online legal learning resources to law students and others who want to learn about law.

Lawline.com, a major provider of online continuing legal education (CLE) materials, has recently launched a new service, called learn.lawline.com, offering access to hundreds of hours of educational videos, for free. These materials are packaged in short, targeted segments so that those seeking to learn about specific legal topics can quickly find information that speaks directly to their interests.

Lawline.com will work with NYLS to develop and repurpose additional video materials, some of which will be created regularly for classes and conferences held at the Law School, and some of which will be developed especially for this new, broader audience.

"We are excited to bring our CLE materials to law students, many of whom will learn more about the real challenges of law practice, and take advantage of the convenience of video materials to study on their mobile devices," said David Schnurman, CEO of Lawline.com, who is a 2006 alumnus of NYLS.

NYLS and Lawline.com will also collaborate to explore developments in online education, generally, including the potential for new kinds of legal learning objects, such as online games and law practice simulations. NYLS has been delivering novel software-based games and simulations to its students for some time. "We believe it is time to invite a wider array of teachers and learners into a shared online legal learning space," said Professor Dan Hunter, Director of the Institute for Information Law & Policy at New York Law School.

"We want to address a global audience of people who want to learn about law for all kinds of reasons. We will offer degrees and certificates, of course. But we also hope to create models that incentivize practitioners, recent grads, and students to develop new types of materials that help others to learn about law," said NYLS Dean Richard A. Matasar.

The NYLS-Lawline.com alliance is among several new initiatives that will be announced by Dean Matasar at the Future Ed: New Business Models for U.S. and Global Legal Education conference on April 15-16, 2011. The conference, co-hosted by Harvard Law School and New York Law School, brings together educators, lawyers, clients, regulators, and legal entrepreneurs to design and test potential innovations in the law school curriculum, teaching methods, and the use of technology.

IoT is at the core or many Digital Transformation initiatives with the goal of re-inventing a company's business model. We all agree that collecting relevant IoT data will result in massive amounts of data needing to be stored. However, with the rapid development of IoT devices and ongoing business model transformation, we are not able to predict the volume and growth of IoT data. And with the lack of IoT history, traditional methods of IT and infrastructure planning based on the past do not app...
Organizations planning enterprise data center consolidation and modernization projects are faced with a challenging, costly reality. Requirements to deploy modern, cloud-native applications simultaneously with traditional client/server applications are almost impossible to achieve with hardware-centric enterprise infrastructure.

Digital Transformation is much more than a buzzword. The radical shift to digital mechanisms for almost every process is evident across all industries and verticals. This is often especially true in financial services, where the legacy environment is many times unable to keep up with the rapidly shifting demands of the consumer. The constant pressure to provide complete, omnichannel delivery of customer-facing solutions to meet both regulatory and customer demands is putting enormous pressure on...
