Law School Summary -- Laptops in Class Helps
The National Law Journal has posted a summary of a national study of law students. Among the findings highlighted is that laptops in class do have academic value. That's because students can, for instance, instantly look up cases that are mentioned in class. (The summary doesn't mention what might be open on other browsing tabs at the same time.)
