LegalTech is a three-day legal technology extravaganza that only happens once each year in which more than 11,000 attendees wander in and out of 285 booths in the Hilton New York Hotel, take part in inspirational and educational lectures, watch and learn from technology buffs, and enjoy themselves at some pretty fantastic parties. The three-day technology fest began on Monday, January 29, and wrapped up on Wednesday, January 31.

Some of the topics covered in panels, speeches, and demonstrations this year included e-discovery, legal IT, outsourcing, email, litigation technology, and general management.

On the first day, keynote speaker David A. Thomas, Deputy Assistant Director of the Science and Technology Branch of the FBI, spoke on the subject of data security with regard to Internet crimes.

On the second day, Brian D. Zeve, Professional Services Industry Managing Director for Microsoft Corporation; Craig S. Medwick, Americas Region Managing Partner at Clifford Chance US, LLP; and Eugene P. Stein, Chief Knowledge and Technology Officer for White & Case, LLP, spoke on the topic of globalization and the legal profession.

Speakers for the last day included John J. Rosenthal, Partner at Howrey, LLP; Ronald K. Perkowski, Senior Counsel for Halliburton Company; and Jason Priebe, Corporate Counsel for Allstate Insurance Company. The title of their presentation was "Persuading the Bean-Counters: Effective Arguments for Legal Enterprise Technology."

Among the 285 exhibitors that flocked to the conference to showcase their goods and get their names out among legal professionals are BlackBerry, Google, Inc., JD Journal, LexisNexis, Sprint, and Xerox Corporation.

Described as "the largest and most important legal technology event of the year," LegalTech is both a tradeshow and an educational seminar rolled into one.

"LegalTech provides an in-depth look at what the technological world has in store for you and your practice AND offers an expansive exhibit floor with the most extensive gathering of innovative products designed to meet your current and future technology needs," LegalTech's website states.

Couldn't make it to the East Coast this year? Never fear. LegalTech West Coast 2007 is coming to the Los Angeles Convention Center June 20 and 21.

Success Stories

LawCrossing was probably the best legal board I have used. I liked the layout and it was user friendly. I tried to use another job board, but it was not user friendly and was kind of a pain, whereas LawCrossing was easy to use to find jobs. I really liked it. I would certainly recommend this site and service to my colleagues.
