Throughout Europe and Eastern Europe, Holger Zscheyge is widely regarded as a leading authority on legal technology and innovation. President of the European Legal Technology Association, he is also founder and managing director of Infotropic Media, a Moscow-based legal publisher and producer of legal technology conferences, and a cofounder of Moscow Legal Hackers.

Zscheyge was a guest on LawNext in 2018, when I interviewed him live in Moscow at the Skolkovo LegalTech conference about the state of legal tech adoption in Russia. A lot has changed since then, so Zscheyge, who took office as ELTA president last November, returns to LawNext to share his perspectives on legal tech and innovation in Europe and Eastern Europe as they stand today.

In a wide-ranging conversation, Zscheyge and I discuss legal tech use by law departments and law firms, the pandemic’s impact on legal tech adoption, regulatory-reform initiatives that parallel those in the U.S., and the need for law schools to better teach legal tech and innovation.
