Jeff Ward

Duke School of Law

As Director of the Duke Center on Law & Technology, Jeff aims not only to help lawyers thrive in tech-driven legal practice but also to facilitate Duke’s leadership at the intersection of law and technology. The Center does this with programs such as the Duke Law Tech Lab, a pre-accelerator for legal technology companies, and the Access Tech Tools initiative, a program to help students and Duke’s community partners to employ both human-centered design thinking and available technologies to create tools to enhance access to legal services. In his courses, such as Law & Policy Lab: Blockchain and Frontier Robotics & AI: Law & Ethics, Jeff and his students explore the technologies that are here, the emerging technologies that are near, and the frontier technologies that make us say “Oh, my dear!”
