#LegalTech and #LegalInnovation is Global — On Friday, I delivered the Keynote at the first Legal Tech Congress hosted by Flemish Bar Association in Brussel. We had ~250+ in attendance at the event.
#LegalTech and #LegalInnovation is Global – It was my great pleasure to speak last night at a Legal Innovation and Technology event in Budapest. It was a full venue with ~150 people in attendance. The Legal Tech and Innovation community in Hungary is small but gaining strength! Given its historic strengths in STEM – I expect efforts in this region to grow over the coming years.

Our LexPredict Team is excited to announce the new ContraxSuite User Interface – See Press Release < HERE >
ContraxSuite has a wide range of user types across our various legal service delivery customers. Relevant users include legal data scientists, power users in legal information technology, professional review teams at legal process outsourcers, contract review units in corporate legal departments, as well as associates and partners in law firms. While the existing ContraxSuite user interface will still serve as the interface for our data scientist community, the new UI is designed to serve the needs of a much broader community of users.
Eric Detterman – VP and Global Head of Products and Solution Engineering at LexPredict noted, “The new ContraxSuite User Interface delivers the bells and whistles that many users expect from a modern app or software tool, including dynamic menus, helpful dialog boxes, and an easy, intuitive design.”
It was a full house for the Block Legal Tech Conference at Illinois Tech – Chicago Kent College of Law. Thanks to our speakers, sponsors and delegates!
“Monax announced that eleven organizations are partnering with the Agreements Network (AN) which turns ‘legal processes into products’. The network enables people to create legally compliant agreements from templates with a few clicks.
The project deserves attention because of the involvement of Monax which is known for contributing the code to Hyperledger Burrow.
The AN announced it’s working with law firms BakerHostetler, LegalBono and ErdosIP. Additionally, tech firm partners include Clause, Crowdcube, LexPredict, Libra, Mattereum, Monax, Rymedi, TransparentNode and Wolfram Blockchain Labs.”
