Please join the Michigan State University Center for Law, Technology & Innovation on March 26, 2021 (Friday) at 1:00 Eastern for a free Zoom presentation on current uses and possible future uses of Virtual Reality in the practice of law. Might some of your future work be done while wearing VR goggles? You’ll see examples of what is happening right now and discussion of the potential benefits and challenges of using VR in the practice of law.

VR gives us a great example of a technology on the near horizon and how the legal profession can anticipate and prepare for likely impacts in day-to-day law practice and interactions with all constituents of the legal system. How might the ethical duty of technology competence apply in the specific example of Virtual Reality?
