Conor Malloy – Automating your Law Practice We will cover different points of friction many law firms experience in their daily activities and how to free up time in order to increases billable hours, or alternatively, optimize flat-rate billing. We will focus on optimizing one’s practice using automation, including a variety of off-the-shelf technology.
Samira Nazem – Technology in the Courts Our courts may be steeped in history and tradition, but they are not immune from technology and change. As lawyers and litigants increasingly turn to technology to simplify court procedures and improve access to justice, the courts must also think about how they can effectively and responsibly use technology to meet the evolving needs of the public. From remote appearances to electronic filing, learn about new ways in which our state courts are connecting with litigants and lawyers.
