Whenever I hear someone complain (and it’s still too often) about not being able to find “qualified women” to speak at legal tech conferences, I swallow my irritation and frustration and politely point them to the ABA Legal Technology Resource Center’s Women of Legal Tech list, which now includes 121 names. If you can’t find a speaker there, you simply aren’t trying.
The 2020 additions to the list are now public and we are rapidly approaching the 2020 Women of Legal Tech Summit – a combination of honoree recognition, celebration, networking, design thinking, and not-the-usual educational presentations. It’s on Wednesday, February 26 at CIIT Chicago-Kent College of Law in Chicago.
There are still a limited number of registrations available, but it would be cool to sell this one out this week.
If you are already in Chicago or will be in Chicago for ABA TECHSHOW, my best advice is to get yourself registered. My friend Christie Guimond (a co-founder of She Breaks the Law) is coming in from London to speak – it should be much easier for you.
Here are the highlights:
8:00 a.m. – Registration
8:30 a.m. – Welcome Remarks
8:40 a.m. – Opening Address
Judy Perry Martinez, President, American Bar Association
9:00 a.m. – Ignite Sessions (7-minute, fast-paced presentations
11:30 a.m. – Recognition Ceremony for 2020 Women of Legal Tech Honorees
ABA Legal Technology Resource Center

4:30 p.m. – Concluding Remarks
And not-the-usual pricing!
US$100 or US$90 (if you are an ABA member)
Hope to see you there. Register here.
