“Our exclusive audience will be a deliberate mix of private practice lawyers, corporate legal champions, public sector standouts, senior knowledge and technology personnel, representatives from the emerging and evolving areas of legal pricing, process improvement, project management and service delivery enhancement, – and educators from leading institutions. We believe that at events such as this one, the best knowledge sharing comes from a delegate community whose job titles have been “mixed up to fix it up”.
We’re pleased to confirm that we have assembled a unique speaking faculty to bring you lessons from both inside and outside of the legal industry. These voices represent consumers and suppliers of legal services, scholars, and individuals dedicated to social justice.
Representatives from a vast range of organizations will present on the day, sharing their experiences on a variety of successes and failures. Delegates will share insights on emerging trends and issues, discuss real successes and failures, and absorb opportunities to transform the practice of law. We aim to give you the inspiration to do something different when you return to work.” Learn More Here – http://chicago.jandersdean.com/
Today I am quoted in a story in Wired about Legal Tech and its role in shaping change within the legal industry …
Today I had the pleasure of participating in the Law, Justice & Development Week at the World Bank in its headquarters in Washington DC. My panel was focused on Technology, Data and Computation to Promote the Rule of Law. It was a great and meaningful conversation pointed toward substantive applications!
Tomorrow I will be speaking on the opening panel at the Advanced E-Discovery Institute @ Georgetown Law. The event draws hundreds of lawyers and technologists to Washington DC to discuss the latest advances in the rapidly evolving field of E-Discovery.
Lots in here that is relevant to many other industries besides automotive … I particularly enjoyed the comments from the alleged thought leaders in the auto industry.

Yesterday I had the pleasure of participating in the Thomson Reuters Law Firm COO & CFO Forum Pre-Conference Workshop on Big Data. The half day workshop explored various way that law firms and outside counsel can use data to be better lawyers and run better businesses.
Here is the information for my panel (below) and the full program is located here.
Few business trends are as simultaneously revered, derided, appreciated or ignored as that of big data. Used (somewhat flippantly) to describe large, complex data sets that resist traditional data processing applications, big data represents both a beginning and end for many professional industries ill- prepared to harness big data’s myriad benefits and value. This opening conversation lays the framework for our program by addressing four key questions and concerns:
- What is big data?
- Why should we use it?
- Where does it lie within a business organization?
- How do we identify ROI and value in big data investment?
