Monica Bay, Citywealth 2008 legaltech woman of the year and Editor in Chief LTN, reveals insider advice for LegalTech NYC
The best advice I can give to attendees is wear realllllly comfortable shoes!
LegalTech New York can be thoroughly overwhelming, so to make the most out of your experience, it’s a great idea to “triage” – decide what your key objectives are for the show, and then take a look at the program ahead of time (www.legaltechshow.com) to decide on three or four major goals for your visit.
For example, if you are interested in E-Discovery, you will want to be sure to make it to Tuesday’s opening keynote address by Tom Allmann, a widely respected consultant (and one of the authors of ALM’s EDDUpdate Blog (www.eddupdate.com). Or you might want to attend the Association of Litigation Support Professionals’ Meet and Confer program, on Thursday. And be sure to visit the show floor, where you can compare and contrast the offerings of vendors.
If you are about to adopt “Green Law” protocols at your organization, you won’t want to miss “It’s Not Easy to be Green… or is it?,” a Wednesday panel that will be held as part of the CIO Forum program.
Of course, LTNY wouldn’t be LTNY with sequins and parties ‚Äî highlighted by the Fifth Annual LTN Awards gala Tuesday night. Careful how late you stay out, because you’ll want to be bright and alert Wednesday morning for the Editors’ Breakfast and Bloggers Gathering ‚Äî where you can meet editors of ALM publications and bloggers from its Law.com Bloggers Network.
