As I was watching the Chicago skyline become smaller and smaller out of the window on the plane ride home, I couldn’t help but think of how big an opportunity it was to be able to learn from, and network with, the absolute best in the business at ABA TECHSHOW.

This year’s show was bigger than ever and I did my best to take full advantage. Not only did I have the chance to participate in sessions about artificial intelligence, blockchain, and a discussion about whether law students should be taught to code, I had the opportunity to represent the Univesity of Oklahoma College of Law in a panel interview for the Legal Talk Network. The interview was posted to their podcast network, in addition to the Young Lawyers Division and Law Student Division of the ABA media outlets. Listen to the podcast here!

Alternatively, I have seen the handicaps on productivity as a result of poorly-executed integration projects. Continue Reading TECHSHOW 2019 is almost here!

We are days away from the 2019 ABA TECHSHOW and I can already feel the excitement brewing on the OU College of Law campus. Last year’s TECHSHOW was nothing short of amazing. The only thing that rivaled the education I received in Chicago was the ability to network with some of the most influential thought-leaders in legal tech.  This year, since I know a little more about what to expect,  I thought I would share my goals for this year’s trip to Chicago.

 

The EXPO

Last year I was honored to be selected to attend TECHSHOW as a 1L. Looking back at how far I have come in my legal career, I realize how green I truly was. This year, I have begun narrowing down my practice area and have started taking steps to develop my skills accordingly. Continue Reading OU Law at the 2019 ABA TECHSHOW
