Reinvent Law London 2014 – It’s all about the people

Published on 12/07/2014 By Brian Inkster

… I usually write a review of Reinvent Law London: having done so for the first such event, when it was called LawTech Camp London 2012, and the second, Reinvent Law London 2013. This year I was speaking at Reinvent Law London 2014. I have already posted on here my talk on ‘Improving‘ and the […]

Improving at Reinvent Law

Published on 10/05/2014 By Brian Inkster

… I am speaking at Reinvent Law London on 20 June 2014. The title of my talk is ‘Improving’, inspired by a blog post of the same name by Jon Busby : Improving. The truth is that lawyers are trying to reinvent themselves into something they will never be instead of improving on what they actually […]

Reinvent Law NYC: A view from across the pond

Published on 08/02/2014 By Brian Inkster

… I was in Glasgow, Scotland yesterday and not New York City, USA. I would have been in the latter attending the Reinvent Law Conference had the organisers invited Scott Greenfield to talk. I gave that promise following Reinvent Law London in 2013. It was not to be despite my proding. So instead I followed […]

Published on 03/01/2014 By Brian Inkster

… The Time Blawg was three years old on 1 January 2014. It is now, at this time of year, traditional for me to look back over the past year on The Time Blawg with my reflections and thoughts on the past, present and future practice of law. So here goes. In 2013 I blogged less […]

Reinvent Law London 2013 Reviewed: DO – don’t just talk

Published on 16/06/2013 By Brian Inkster

… I attended Reinvent Law in London on Friday. It had the same organisers (Daniel Katz and Renee Knake of Michigan State University College of Law in partnership with the University of Westminster) and style as LawTech Camp London 2012. Basically the same concept but with a new name. So pretty much every tweeting legal is here […]

Published on 05/01/2013 By Brian Inkster

… On 1 January 2011, The Time Blawg materialised. One year ago I looked back at the first year of The Time Blawg – One Year On. Two days ago I looked back at what went on during the second year of The Time Blawg with specific reference to Social Media and give my thoughts […]

Lawyers cannot hide on Twitter

Published on 29/01/2012 By Brian Inkster

… Recent headlines in the The Mail Online and The Telegraph suggested that a (now ex) Barrister (who tweets as @Geeklawyer) had been struck off for inappropriate tweeting. Delve a little deeper and he was in fact fined £2,500 by the Bar Standards Board (BSB) for his tweeting and, put simply, disbarred for his conduct […]

Key Lime Pie Law Firm Marketing Strategy

Published on 20/04/2011 By Brian Inkster

… Earlier this month I was in Marks & Spencer and a Key Lime Pie caught my eye. I can’t recall ever eating a Key Lime Pie before but I had seen Scott Greenfield twit (he does not tweet) about such pies. He is rather partial to them and sometimes waits by his mailbox for […]

Should lawyers have their own Paper.li?

Published on 12/02/2011 By Brian Inkster

… A week or so ago I noticed a little difficulty arise between Scott Greenfield and Rocket Matter concerning Paper.li. Whilst this started on Twitter it soon moved onto their respective blogs. Scott’s blog post Rocket Doesn’t Matter told us:- “There is was, right on twitter this morning, much to my surprise. The Rocket Matter, LLC […]
