My first ABA Techshow as editor is in the books. I didn’t write anything this time – instead, I was in charge of editing the stories that came in and coordinating our coverage. But, I still managed to get the now–traditional picture of me looking at my laptop and typing away like a madman:(more…)
Famed law blogger Bob Ambrogi recounts his unorthodox path towards legal journalism, as well as where he sees the legal industry heading.
Here are the stories that came out of my live coverage of the 2017 Avvo Lawyernomics Conference (my fourth such conference – time flies!):
Anyway, I recently covered my fourth Techshow for the ABA Journal. Here are the stories that came out of it:(more…)
For a long time data had shown that law firms generally generated more revenue than accounting firms overall. However, that trend has shifted within the last eight years with accounting firms enjoying greater fiscal success. What changes did the accounting world make that allowed them to surpass legal market revenue? In this report from On The Road, host Victor Li talks with Intuit small business ecosystem evangelist David Leary about the impact that embracing technology, adopting the cloud, and business innovations can have on legal industry earnings.
At 7th annual Avvo Lawyernomics, the emphasis will be on “unmarketing.”
In spite of regulations, lawyers should be bold with their advertising efforts.
Do lawyers really suck? No, and potential clients’ antipathy can be overcome.
The “magnet” of expertise draws clients, generates fees.
Here’s a link to a Storify for all of my Live-Tweets during the conference.
Yeah, I referenced Disney’s “Dog With a Blog” in my latest “Law Scribbler” column about how law firms are going to blog more in the coming year. It all makes sense – I think.
William Hubbard speaks about the importance of technology in expanding access to justice.
Embracing nontraditional ways to bill and budget can be profitable.
Can small firms thrive in a tough competitive environment?
Is online dispute resolution the wave of the future?
EFF’s Cindy Cohn calls for lawyer support in fight over mass surveillance.
Cybersecurity experts offer stern warnings, tips for security in mass-surveillance era.
State bar was the key to open profession to tech and collaboration.
’60 in 60′ highlights cybersecurity, workplace productivity and social media.
And thanks to Phil Brown for the great photo and Tweet. Love his photos!
Another ABA Annual Meeting is in the books. I only covered a few events this year (a far cry from last year). Here are the stories that came out of my coverage:
How can tensions between minorities and police be addressed? Reforms proposed.
Lawyers debate campaign financing, voter restrictions and other election issues.
Disruptive innovators try to convince skeptical attorneys of the need to collaborate.
What are the business costs of ignoring racial and gender diversity?
Meanwhile, the quote from the Tweet below caused quite a commotion.
From audience: “You talk about the law like it’s a business. It’s not. It’s a profession.” I guess that sums up the divide nicely #ABAAnnual
