Picture this: you’re less than a year into life as the Founder and Managing Director of a boutique law firm. Business is progressing well and recently you’ve been finding yourself with a couple of hours spare at the end of each day. So what do you do? Take up taekwondo, become a pub quiz regular, read Russian literature?
‘Blockchain’ is one of the biggest buzzwords in LegalTech. And this year, we predict it’s going mainstream. Everyone from May to Macron to Meghan Markle will be talking about it.
But what actually is it, and what does it mean?
Legal Geeks, we find, come in varied forms, from many different backgrounds. But this week’s Legal Geek of the Week, Helen Gazzi, represents the biggest outlier we’ve featured so far.
Yes, she’s one of our own as the Legal Geek Law for Good Manager – but she’s so much more than that.
Welcome back to January. We’ve all been here before, and it’s still as tough as ever. Except, things are about to get a little bit better thanks to Legal Geek’s 9 Life Hacks To Smack January In The Face. Legal Geek’s life hacks range from the ridiculous to the genuinely life-enhancing, thanks to contributions from David Bushby and Nick Watson 🙂
We hope they help you make it through January.
The looming prospect of automation of some of the mundane tasks which have traditionally formed the backbone of an associate-level lawyer’s apprenticeship is a thorny matter.
‘It’s great,’ shout some; ‘it could be a disaster’ fear others. The prevailing legal tech hegemony is that technology won’t take jobs away from associate-level lawyers…
We’ve almost crossed the threshold of being closer to the 2018 Legal Geek Road Trip than we are to this summer’s inaugural adventure.
Which is super exciting for Legal Geek and means we can start warming up Betty (our 1971 VW camper van) to once again cruise the autobahns, autoroutes and snelwegen of Europe in search of the thriving LegalTech communities on the continent.
Forgive us for looking backwards but it’s one month on from the Legal Geek Conference 2017 and we’re coming over all misty eyed at how epic you all made this year’s edition.
It really was a blast and we hope you enjoyed it as much as Tom, Pieter, James, Garth, and Rob; who we spoke to on the sidelines of the start-up alley.
