ReInvent Law Laboratory




Associated Innovators

Daniel Martin Katz and Renee Knake Jefferson

The ReInvent Law Laboratory was founded by Daniel Martin Katz and Renee Knake Jeffersonat Michigan State University College of Law in Spring 2012. In a 2014 feature on law schools doing similar things, The New York Times described the ReInvent Law Laboratory this way:

Michigan State professors don’t just teach torts, contracts and the intricacies of constitutional law. They also delve into software and services that sift through thousands of cases to help predict whether a client’s case might be successful or what arguments could be most effective. They introduce their students to programs that search through mountains of depositions and filings, automating tasks like the dreary “document review” that was once the baptism of fire and boredom for young associates.

“This Is Law School?”
