As a member of the local organizing committee, I just wanted to mention that today is the final day for priority registration for the International Conference on Artificial Intelligence & Law in San Diego.
Featuring Phil Malone, Stephanie Kimbro and my future Chicago Kent colleague Ronald W. Staudt … worth a watch …
I am excited to announce that I am leaving MSU to join the Chicago-Kent College of Law where I have accepted a lateral offer starting this summer.
It is has been a good run here at MSU Law and wish my MSU colleagues all the best.
The opportunity to be part of one of the long standing and premier law+tech programs is extremely exciting and I look forward to doing great things with my new colleagues at Chicago Kent. As noted in the press release, I am excited to “assume a key leadership role in the law school’s ongoing initiative to build the preeminent law and technology program in the country!”
More to come starting this summer …
Some scenes from my LegalTech NYC 2015 experience in the pictures above (including getting stuck in an elevator).
As Oliver Goodenough has noted – #LegalTech NYC features between “$20 billion to $30 billion a year in commercial activity.” Curated by Stanford CodeX (where I am now an external faculty affiliate) and Mike Bommarito is a fellow, this year’s legal tech offered ten early to mid stage legal tech startups who collectively cover a wide range of practice areas.
I presented on a panel sponsored by FTI Technology which featured Judge John Facciola (United States Magistrate Judge in the District of Columbia), David Horrigan (451 Research) and Cliff Nichols (Day Pitney).

While our primary home will remain here MSU Law, Mike Bommarito and I are excited to be joining up with the good folks at CodeX – Stanford Center for Legal Informatics. Based upon our shared interests, we plan to work together on some joint research activities with some of the many talented individuals in the Stanford CodeX ecosystem. I will be joining CodeX as an External Affiliated Faculty and Mike will be joining as a CodeX Fellow. We are very excited to push forward together in the short, medium and long term!
This past Thursday Ron Dolin and I spole on a panel at the 19th Annual Thomson Reuters Legal Executive Institute Law Firm Leaders Forum. Above are Ron’s slides which many of you might find interesting. Below is a modified version of my presentation Five Observations Regarding Technology and the Legal Industry (which I gave at the LegalWeek Corporate Counsel Forum last month).
Thanks to Ralph Baxter (Chairman Emeritus @ Orrick) for inviting me to present to this extremely accomplished group of AMLaw 200 managing partners.
