Phew! It has been awhile over on this here blog — senior partners have been keeping us busy with work on the upcoming release of our CorpBot Toolkit. Anyways, we’re finally getting some fresh air and (trying) to even out our florescent, computer screen tan in the next few weeks. There’s two events that RR&H will be making an appearance at:
Friends over at the Stanford Center for Computers and the Law are doing a small day long get-together gathering the entrepreneurs, scholars, and financiers that are working in disruptive technology in the legal industry in the Bay Area. Looking to be a showcase of a ton of awesome companies that are working in the space, as well as a good chance to unconference and scheme more generally.
The link above mentions that the event is invite only – but give us a holler (tim AT robotandhwang.com), if you want to get on the guest list and we’ll be happy to get you the deets. We’ll be there throughout the day, and then will be doing one of our usual disruptive legal technology dinners/meetups, so if you’re Mountain View-based and want to meet up afterwards, we’ll be all decamping somewhere around 7 that day. Just watch the @RobotandHwang.
John Randall and the team over at BLIP are engaged in a neat experiment: can hackathons be deployed among lawyers to stimulate new ideas and collaborations as effectively as they are in the software/web space? It’s not something that we’ve heard done much in the past, and something that we’re excited to see play out and would love to have more of, frankly.
We’re trapped out (unfortunately!) in the Bay Area, but we’ll be tuning in on Skype big-head-on-a-screen style to give a short talk entitled “Horses To Water” – about battle plans for actually achieving adoption of legal tech in a world full of haters (lawyers). If you’re going to be around NYC, registration is available here.
Anyways, we’d love to hang out at either (or both) of these events. Hope to catch you all around!
