After 31 years, ABA Techshow is the granddaddy of legal technology conferences. That can be both a blessing and a curse. Amid a surge of legal-tech-conference upstarts, the challenge for Techshow is not merely to stay relevant, but to continue to push the envelope of what a legal tech conference can and should be.
Having just returned from this year’s Techshow, I can report that it was a success on all fronts. New programming, new speakers and new features fueled a high level of energy and helped create an atmosphere that felt as fresh and energetic as at any contemporary conference.
My full post-mortem is the subject of my column this week at Above the Law: ABA TECHSHOW Post-Mortem: Not Your Granddaddy’s Legal Tech Conference. I hope you’ll read it and, if you were there, let me know if you agree.
