Clio Cloud Conference Logo

Clio, the cloud-based legal practice management platform, announced today that it will host the inaugural Clio Cloud Conference Sept. 23 and 24 in Chicago. I am proud to have been invited to speak at the conference, which will feature various presentations focusing on the evolving relationship between law and technology.

According to Clio’s announcement, a focal point of the event will be an “unconference” format that will run in parallel with other conference sessions. This format will give attendees a hands-on, interactive venue to engage with other attendees as well as with Clio’s support and product teams.

I will be speaking on the security and ethics of cloud computing. Other conference sessions will cover going mobile, accounting, virtual law firms, customer service, online marketing, social media, going paperless, document automation, and branding. Several sessions will focus on specific aspects of using Clio’s practice management platform.

In addition to myself, others who are scheduled to speak at the conference include:

  • Jack Newton, Clio’s co-founder and CEO. 
  • Andy Daws, vice president North America – Riverview Law. 
  • Ed Walters, CEO and co-founder of Fastcase. 
  • Chad Burton, founding attorney of Burton Law, a virtual law firm. 
  • Doug Edmonds, assistant dean for IT at UNC School of Law. 
  • Matt Homann, founder of LexThink. 
  • Joshua Lenon, Clio’s director of communications and outreach. 
  • Gwynne Monahan, Clio’s communications manager and community manager for Small Firm Innovation. 

Early bird registration for the two-day conference is $299. After July 1, the regular registration rate will be $399. Registration includes access to all sessions and events, all meals and snacks (including dinner), networking events and conference materials.
