As my part of my final day in Amsterdam – it was my great pleasure to join with my friends from the Dutch Law Firm – Kennedy Van Der Laan (co-founded by the Mayor of Amsterdam Eberhard van der Laan) for a Legal Innovation Event. The event combined sessions in data, technology and design thinking for a variety of European General Counsels.
I spoke on a panel on Thursday entitled – The Future of e-Discovery Law, Business, and Practice with the following panelists —
David Horrigan, kCura
Monica Bay, CodeX: The Stanford Center for Legal Informatics
Dennis Garcia, Assistant General Counsel, Microsoft
Daniel Katz, Illinois Tech – Chicago Kent College of Law + LexPredict
James Francis IV (S.D.N.Y), United States Magistrate Judge
Andrew Jimenez, CEO, Fronteo USA
Today I am quoted in a story in Wired about Legal Tech and its role in shaping change within the legal industry …
Tomorrow I will be speaking at the 19th Annual Law Firm Leaders Forum in NYC (Presented by Thomson Reuters Legal Executive Institute). This annual event draws a large number of leaders from the AMLaw 200 law firms. The focus of my panel will be the Emerging Role of Technology in the Law Firm Model. I am joined by a world class faculty which includes representatives from Law firms, In House, Legal Tech and the Legal Academy, etc.

Having recently returned from the LegalFutures.co.uk meeting on alternative business structures (ABS), I can report there are number of important developments taking place across the pond. Developing the next generation of legal service delivery is question of supply chain, scale efficiency, software aided point of sale legal practice, access to capital markets, marketing, queueing theory, legal information technology – you know – all of the things that we teach students in law school (see my MIT School of Law proposal for a potential way forward — #icebergsahead )
