Legal Innovation Meetups
All over the US, legal innovation meetup groups have been formed to bring individuals interested in reinventing the law together. Just a few months ago, my mentors Dan Linna and Amani Smathers started the first of these groups in Michigan: The Detroit Legal Innovation and Technology Meetup. Similar "legal hacker" groups exist in D.C., Seattle, New York, Toronto, LA, Boston, Austin, Cincinnati, and Atlanta. By networking with other attorney and legal technology professionals, these groups have become a powerful forum for discussing many of the 21st century issues facing the legal industry today.
