What is the impact of technology innovation on law practice? An Oct. 22 program at New York University School of Law will examine this question, and it will do so with a notable twist — the majority of the panelists are NYU Law graduates who left law practice to found or join legal technology companies.

The program will feature a panel discussion, “Impact of Innovation,” that will look at key areas of innovation in law and the implications of technological change. Zach Abramowitz, the CEO of ReplyAll, an Above the Law columnist, and a 2010 NYU Law grad, will moderate.

Also on the panel will be:

  • Alma Asay (NYU Law ’05), former founder and CEO of Allegory Law and now chief innovation officer, legal solutions, at Integreon.
  • Catherine Bernard (NYU Law ’02), U.S. litigation professional support lawyer, Mayer Brown.
  • Anna McGrane (NYU Law ’10), chief operations officer, PacerPro.
  • Chris Martin, lead innovation and technology solutions attorney, Latham & Watkins.
  • Christian Lang (NYU Law ’10), founder, NY Legal Tech Meetup, Dealtech, and Blacklines & Billables.
  • Felicity Conrad (NYU Law ’13), cofounder & CEO, Paladin.
  • Jason Schultz, NYU Law professor and co-director of the Engelberg Center on Innovation Law & Policy at NYU Law.
  • Morris Massel (NYU Law ’99), president and founder, CourtSolutions.
  • Noah Waisberg (NYU Law ’06), cofounder & CEO, Kira Systems.
  • Ron Friedmann (NYU Law ’86), partner, Fireman & Company.

The panel discussion is 7-8 p.m, following a networking reception at 6:30 p.m. After the panel, from 8-9 p.m., there will be drinks, networking and breakout sessions.

The program is sponsored by the Engelberg Center, NYU Law’s Office of Career Services, and PacerPro. Attendance is free but registration is required.
