When LXBN TV’s three-man video crew made their way out of the Hilton New York’s large rotating doors and into the unseasonably warm sunshine hitting NYC’s West 42nd Street, we could barely believe it was all over. Events and projects like this are often chaotic and stressful but, at the same time, over before you know it.
Drafting documents and researching cases is time-intensive, and any new tool that makes the process easier is sure to be appreciated by all practicing attorneys. LXBN TV got a chance to talk with Suzanne Petren-Moritz of LexisNexis about a recently released product from LexisNexis that does just that. Suzanne, the Vice President and Managing Director of the new Practice Advisor, gave us an inside look at why lawyers and other legal professionals should be looking forward to using this tool.
Far and away, predictive coding stands out as the most popular topic at LegalTech New York 2012. But close behind it, we have cloud computing. LXBN TV got the opportunity to speak with Nicole Black, author of the ABA book Cloud Computing for Lawyers, and in our short interview she discusses the pros and cons of the practice, along with the legal community’s reception of cloud computing, and what the future may hold for lawyers and law firms on this front.
In their own words, “Bundledocs document bundling software is a complete web-based solution that enables users to easily compile a range of documentation into one easy to read PDF document.” In LXBN TV’s interview with Operations Director Brian Kenneally we discuss the product’s features, what 2012 holds for the company and his thoughts on LegalTech New York 2012.
LegalTech New York 2012 was a great experience for me personally for a number of different reasons. Going to New York, meeting industry leaders, and helping coordinate the largest journalistic project I’ve ever been involved with are just a few of those reasons. However, my favorite part of LegalTech was getting a chance to sit in on some truly thought provoking sessions with government officials, legal practitioners, and scholars. The last session I got an opportunity to cover was with Michigan State University Assistant Professor of Law Daniel Katz (Ph.D, J.D) (also an author on the Computational Legal Studies blog) and it was undoubtedly one of my favorites. Afterwards Professor Katz wrapped up his session, Colin O’Keefe got the chance to talk with him about his research, and what’s new at MSU’s College of Law.
