Legal Futures Innovation Conference 2018: The One with the Women

By | December 31, 2018

The annual Legal Futures Innovation Conference in London is one that I like to take in.

This year’s conference in November was […]

A reality check on a day in the life of the future lawyer

By | December 27, 2018

An article in Raconteur from last month was brought to my attention yesterday on Twitter. It is about ‘a day in the life of the future lawyer‘ (how the life of a leading lawyer will be transformed by legal technology in just a decade). Well, I had thought that the hype around Artificial Intelligence and Legal […]

Is the mist starting to clear around Lawscot Tech?

By | December 19, 2018

I’ve already written a couple of posts about LawScot Tech:- Law Society launches Lawscot Tech but what is it? Lawscot Tech meet and go global! You will note therefrom a certain degree of scepticism. However, happy to learn more and be convinced of the possible merits of this initiative, I went along to their meeting in […]

Lawscot Tech meet and go global!

By | November 5, 2018

I, and others, raised our eyebrows a bit when Lawscot Tech was formed by the Law Society of Scotland. It wasn’t very clear what this initiative actually involved or whether the Law Society knew themselves. Questions asked online at that point still remain largely unanswered. However, some more information has started to emerge online within the Law Society’s […]

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 […]

Chats with Legal Chatbots ~ Episode 1 : The Global Legal Hackathon and LawDroid

By | July 28, 2018

This is a series I have had in mind for a little while since I experimented, a few months ago, having chats with some legal chatbots. Apparently chatbots are the next big thing. In my Legal Technology/IT Predictions for 2018 I blogged:- The big thing in 2018 will be for law firms to start introducing […]

On Sunday (1 April 2018) the first April Fool joke to appear on The Time Blawg was published – Flushed for Success: Loo Law Launches. Thanks to those who responded on social media with comments in similar ‘carry on’ toilet humour style! The original blog post has been updated to include those. Although an April Fool joke, the […]

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: […]

Lawyers and coding

By | February 24, 2018

I revealed in my recent post on ‘Hack the Past : How the Legal Profession knew nothing about Technology‘ that I taught myself some basic coding on a BBC Micro computer way back in the early 1980s. My need/desire to code since has been non existent although I experienced a little bit of it for […]
