Being Willy Wonka at #JDHorizons

By | October 31, 2018

I have been meaning for some time (well since 17 May 2018) to write this blog post. Today, being Halloween, just might be an apt time to publish a post about dressing up as someone else. Readers may recall my post about The Golden Ticket to #JDHorizons (a ‘break the law – make the law’ conference […]

Travels through the Blawgosphere #2 : Artificial Intelligence and Law ~ Robots replacing Lawyers?

By | October 1, 2018

Way back in 2012 I announced I was doing a new series (Travels through the Blawgosphere) that would be an occasional review of blog posts I had come across relative to the past, present and future practice of law (which is what this blog is all about). I did say at the time:- How regular the series […]

Law is a Buyer’s Market: Building a Client-First Law Firm ~ Reviewed

By | August 15, 2018

Reading the introduction to ‘Law is a Buyer’s Market – Building a Client-First Law Firm’ by Jordan Furlong I began to wonder whether I should simply stop reading and leave it at that. This is because Jordan warns the reader that he has narrowed down the focus of his book. He was not writing for […]

The Golden Ticket to #JDHorizons

By | April 6, 2018

This morning a chocolate bar arrived in the post addressed to me at the Inksterplex from Janders Dean. Inside the wrapper was a Golden Ticket to attend #JDHorizons in London on 17 May 2018.

Loo Law April Fool

By | April 4, 2018

On Sunday (1 April 2018) the first April Fool joke to appear on The Time Blawg was published – Flushed for Success: Loo Law Launches.

Flushed for Success: Loo Law Launches

By | April 1, 2018

When tech entrepreneur Sidney James approached me to write an exclusive about the launch of his new and first legal tech initiative, ‘Loo Law’, I was a bit sceptical. At first it sounded quite bizarre but the more I heard about it the more interesting it became. Was this real legal innovation at play? Sidney’s […]

Hype Hurts: Steering Clear of Dangerous AI myths at GlenLegal

By | March 8, 2018

I have been critical of legal technology conferences/events or slots that hype AI or blockchain. I predicted in January that this would be a feature of the year ahead. It was good to see possibly the first legal technology conference of 2018, GlenLegal: The Legal IT Leaders Forum, that instead highlighted the hype surrounding AI in legal: […]

By | March 3, 2018

My last post ‘Hack the Law to Reinvent the Wheel?‘ generated a lot of debate on Twitter and LinkedIn yesterday (social media comments have now been incorporated at the end of that post). It also brought out some interesting answers to the question “Why blockchain?” (asked following Pinsent Masons winning the London Legal Hackathon with […]

Hack the Law to Reinvent the Wheel?

By | March 1, 2018

My last post on ‘Lawyers and coding‘ was written as the Global Legal Hackathon was underway. We now have the results. As I watched proceedings via Twitter, with specific reference to the London event, I was of the view that I was seeing solutions to ‘problems’ that possibly didn’t really exist and the wheel often being reinvented.
