LONDON, Aug. 16, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — HighQ has cemented a unique partnership to assist the University of Melbourne Law School in the creation of a collaborative educational project for first-year students.
Melbourne Law School aims to expose about 400 law students to legal technology they might use in a future legal career. HighQ, a market leader in providing collaborative software to the legal industry, will host the new subject, Disputes and Ethics, on its Collaborate platform. The subject will include 70 different teams organised into law firms working on a fictional legal dispute. The HighQ platform will allow integrated communication between the student teams and Melbourne Law School faculty.
“HighQ is excited to be a part of this innovative project with the University of Melbourne Law School,” said Ajay Patel, Co-Founder and CEO of HighQ. “This is a unique opportunity to put our legal technology in front of students who will undoubtedly use this experience to help shape their careers in law. We look forward to developing this in conjunction with university staff to make the ODR as beneficial as possible.”
The University of Melbourne Law School has been ranked seventh in the world and first in Australia in the Times Higher Education World University 2018 Subject Rankings for Law.
