Death to Floppy

How will the death of the floppy affect law students? From what I hear, lots of law schools still require exams to be turned in on a floppy disk.

In some ways it seems the legal profession is light years ahead of lots of other industries—in, for instance, their high use of the internet, email, and wireless (Blackberry) communication. In other ways they're just falling behind—and the biggest example of that is that so many law schools, where future lawyers are taught the tools of the trade if not the trade itself, are Luddite havens.

Kill the floppy!
