10,000 Jam LegalTech NY

I'm at LegalTech New York, along with 10,000 of other technophiles, for one of the biggest tech conferences in years.  It's a sign of the improving economy, and the fact that law firms are opening up their wallets to spend money on technology again.  The show runs from Jan. 31 to February 2.

According to American Lawyer Group Publisher Kevin J. Vermeulen, there are 370+ exhibitors covering three or more floors in the New York Hilton Hotel on Sixth Avenue in New York. I explored the exhibits and it was shoulder-to-shoulder walking.  There is software to manage every imaginable aspect of a law firm.  If you're still doing anything offline or on paper, you need to see this exhibit hall.  Everyone who is anyone in legal tech is here.

The program guide alone is an 88-page magazine.  There are educational programs galore, filling out 16 tracks that change from day-to-day.

  2. E-discovery
  3. Practice and case management
  4. Knowledge management
  5. Managing technology

  11. Legal Tech University
  12. In-House Counsel
