LOL. I am by no means caught up. I’ve got to-do lists and piles of
sorted business cards. Plenty of follow-up yet to go. How about you?
If you were there, wasn’t ILTACON fantastic this year?
A View from a Booth
2019 was the first year of Joy. Not only do I mean the first year of
ILTA’s vibrant new CEO, Joy Heath Rush, but the first year that ILTA
felt truly back on-track.
ILTACON 2019 broke all attendance
records, at over 3,500 legal techies comprised of over 1,800 members and
1,700 business partners. Over 800 members were first-timers, which is
fantastic. I can imagine that some of the booth locations were poor at
the Dolphin. We were fortunate to have good traffic and terrific
interest in our LINK app.
The first time
we were at ILTACON in 2013, I was astonished and impressed at the level
of peer-to-peer sharing in the educational sessions. Essentially,
ILTACON is all about the people. The volunteers and members who create
the sessions. The side meetings, the lunches and dinners, the meetups in
a booth. Where else can you catch up with so many of your favorite
people in legal tech?
I’m grateful for the generosity of all the ILTA community members. Thank you all for making this such a rewarding experience.
ahead, don’t miss #ILTACON20 at the Gaylord Opryland Hotel. It’s like
entering a lush biosphere with fountains and rivers. Be sure to visit
Nashville proper, too, for music 🎸🎺 and hot chicken. 🌶🍗
We are back from a busier than ever ILTA LegalSEC Summit. People attend LegalSEC to genuinely learn how they can keep their law firms protected. This is no easy feat because cybersecurity is a moving target. While Big Law firms participate, there is great value for small and medium sized firms where there might not be a CISO. The Director of IT or network engineer might be the security department. The two or three days at LegalSEC are packed with information.
This year the well-received keynote by William R. Evanina, Director of the National Counterintelligence and Security Center, was recorded. Another popular session was “Leverage These Free Resources to Up Your Security and Governance Game.” Both of these and several other LegalSEC 2019 sessions can be heard at no cost by ILTA members, here.
Heads up, save the date. Next year’s LegalSEC Summit 2020 will be June 1-3 and the location…San Antonio at the Marriott Riverwalk. If you have visited the Riverwalk you know that this is a fantastic location. Hope to see you there.
and we are a sponsor again this year. We will be at Table number one showing LINK’s latest mobile DLP features.

Mobile devices are constantly transacting with sensitive corporate data. Historically, most of that traffic is emails and email attachments. Increasingly, attorneys want to do more on their mobile devices, including annotating and editing documents. Much time and energy has been invested in DLP on the desktop, but what is the state of the art in mobile?
Last week I attended the sixth annual CodeX FutureLaw Conference, under the canopy of the redwoods on the Stanford University campus. I did not know entirely what to expect, but as my office is a few miles down El Camino Real from Stanford, I thought that it was worth investigating. I found the event to be stimulating and I would like to share what I learned so that others may consider attending FutureLaw in the future.
What is CodeX? It is a Stanford group, associated with the Law School, whose mission is to create legal technology that empowers all parties. It is ably headed up by Dr. Roland Vogl.
