Cleveland-Marshall Announces New Legal Tech Lab

Cleveland State University’s Cleveland-Marshall College of Law announced a partnership with Technology Concept & Design, Inc. to create a new legal technology lab and training program.

TCDI pioneers legal technology and provides eDiscovery services, managed document review and litigation management. The new program will offer Cleveland-Marshall Law students, graduates and local contract attorneys the opportunity to use TDCI’s review platform to deliver legal services. 

“This innovative partnership with TCDI will provide students opportunities to learn cutting-edge legal technologies while working with TCDI's sophisticated clients," said Cleveland-Marshall Law Dean Lee Fisher. "The Tech Lab is one of several exciting programs in our new C|M|LAW Tech Initiative that emphasize Cleveland-Marshall Law's commitment to equipping students and legal professionals with the tools and knowledge required for modern legal practice."

The program is housed in a dedicated and secure on-campus center within the law school library.  Attorney project managers will oversee all work performed in the center and work under the direct supervision and guidance of outside or in-house counsel.

The Tech Lab is part of the new Cleveland Marshall Law Tech Initiative. The law school now offers a concentration in Cybersecurity and Privacy, an eDiscovery professional certificate program, a legal tech CLE series and a legal tech summer bootcamp program for practicing attorneys and law students. 

Mark Smolik, Chief Legal & Compliance Officer on the DHL legal team, said, “Cleveland-Marshall Law students will benefit significantly from this forward-thinking collaboration. The program provides opportunities for students to work on a team providing sophisticated legal services to 'real-world' clients, while training the next generation of lawyers to provide pragmatic and business-oriented services.”
