EdUp Legal Podcast with Host Patty Roberts
Digital Commons at St. Mary's University
In today’s episode, we welcome Ashley Krenelka Chase, assistant professor of Law at Stetson University College of Law. At Stetson Law, she has taught legal research and writing and advanced research and technology courses. Before becoming a professor, she was the associate director of the law library and coordinator of legal practice technology. Professor Chase shares with us how she transitioned from serving in leadership in the library at Stetson to teaching on the tenure track, a move which she considered during the pandemic, so she could fulfill her desire to be able to interact more with students. Professor Chase gives us insight into articles she has written that focus on prisoners and their access to justice through the research and technology that they have available. She tells us what excites her and troubles her about the topic and shares her suggestions for aiding prisoners in their access to justice. She tells us that there is a significant problem with access to information, a constitutional right for incarcerated individuals. She also discusses her latest book, Millennial Leadership in Law Schools: Essays in Disruption, Innovation, and the Future, which talks about the role millennials will play in shaping the future of legal education. Professor Chase shares how her students deal with the technology she has implemented in the curriculum to be more reflective of the technology used in the profession. She gives us some tips on some of the technology that is helpful to students and their future careers in the profession. Professor Chase shares her predictions for the future of legal education and her opinion that people and places should not be reduced to rankings, as that ultimately is harmful to the Academy and the legal profession.
