I’m planning to launch something new this fall that I’ve been calling “Legal Innovation as a Service.” The concept is a menu of just-in-time, just-enough service packages targeted at specific parts of the innovation process – ideation, experimentation, evaluation, commercializing, success audits, et al. Much more to come on that in due course.Ideas post-ts

I did a Google search on “legal innovation as a service” (in quotes) and found that Google has literally never seen that combination of words in that order before. In part, this post is designed simply to stake a claim in Google.

I’m also publishing this short post for two other reasons:

1. As you may already know, I’ll be teaching a course called “Entrepreneurial Lawyering” this fall semester in the LegalRnD program at Michigan State University Law School. I thought it might be a good experiment to run my “Legal Innovation as a Service” business as a test case / example during the class and feed results back to the class as part of the learning experience. A little experiment in transparency.

2. I wanted to get customer perspectives on this idea and do some testing. I’d like to find some people who consider themselves potential customers of a service like this who would be wiling to have a phone call with me or perhaps answer a short survey about the idea. If interested, please email me at dmk @ denniskennedy.com. If you participate, I’d like you to allow me to share non-attributed responses as part of my class.

Thanks for your help!

WhiteboardOne of the things I’ve really enjoyed over the past year or so is getting to know Dan Linna and the students in Michigan State’s LegalRnD program, including working on a legal innovation project with a group of students. I also got the chance to host a videocast with Irene Mo and Jay Evans (current and former students of LegalRnD) at TECHSHOW in March (watch video).

A while back, Ken Grady sounded me out on my willingness to take on the two classes he taught in the LegalRnD program. After talking with Kristi Bowman at MSU and Carla Reyes, the new head of LegalRnD, I’m on board as an adjunct for two classes in the next school year. I’ve always enjoyed teaching law school classes, as I did from time to time at Washington University when I was in St. Louis.

So, it’s official – I’m on the MSU website. I’ll be teaching a class called “Entrepreneurial Lawyering” that was developed by Ken Grady. I’ve heard that the class is already full.

It’s been great to see LegalRnD grow under Dan Katz and then Dan Linna. I really like the ideas that Carla Reyes has and am looking to get started.

The students I’ve met in the program have always impressed me and I’m excited to get the chance to push new approaches, innovations, and experiments into legal education.
