One of my favorite projects during my time as chair of the board for American Bar Association’s Legal Technology Resource Center has been the annual Women of Legal Tech list.

In 2015, Heidi Alexander posted a great list of women in the field of legal technology on the Law Technology Today blog. In 2016, she brought the concept to the ABA’s Legal Technology Resource Center to turn it into an annual recognition event.

There has been some evolution of the concept. For example, there is now a nomination and selection process, and there is a new class each year, which I think makes the combined list especially helpful to those looking for women speakers, authors and experts.

The 2017 class was announced at ABA TECHSHOW 2017. The list of this year’s class and earlier classes can be found here.

The 2018 class will be announced at ABA TECHSHOW 2018.

To submit nominations and learn about the process, go to this post on the Law Technology Today blog. Submit early and submit often. Self-nominations allowed and encouraged. The deadline is March 1, 2018.

Nomination form.
