LegalTech Is Coming To San Francisco

For legal technophiles LegalTech is a big deal. Along with the ABA Techshow it is one of the Big Two events in legal technology.

This year's San Francisco event will be June 13 and 14. The venue will be the Hyatt Regency Hotel.

How about these topics:

  • Corporate Legal Operations
  • Advanced IT
  • Compliance, Risk and FCPA
  • What’s Next for eDiscovery?
  • Predictive coding and data analytics/Robots
  • Strategies to Reduce Total Cost of Review
  • Meet the 2016 In-House and Litigation Department of the Year Winners: How Technology Impacts Success
  • Information Governance
  • Government Investigations and High Stakes Litigation
  • Law Firm Practice Management
  • Cybersecurity for Corporate and Outside Counsel
    • Responding to data breaches
    • Best practices for protecting law firm client data
  • The Impact of the FRCP Amendments on eDiscovery and Litigation
  • Strategies Post the EU Safe Harbor Ruling
  • Litigation Funding

  • For those of us with just a passing fancy for technology and for most family law practitioners, LegalTech is probably too much graduate level stuff, particularly for the whopping ticket price ranging from $725 for a one day pass to $1295 for full access.

    I Just Switched To LogMeIn

    I have been remote computing for more than 20 years. Having the ability to operate my office computer 24/7 from anywhere in the world (or at least anywhere that I have internet connectivity or a cell phone signal) is a huge quality of life and quality of practice benefit. I have spread the word on remote computing in articles and presentations for decades. For many of those 20 years my service of choice has been GoToMyPC. I have always loved it, and enthusiastically endorsed it.

    Recently the performance of my GoToMyPC account has been deteriorating. Connections have been slow, interruptions have been frequent. Disconnections have been happening with shocking frequency. The problems were significant enough that I began testing other options. Microsoft Windows has its own resident remote desktop feature. I quickly eliminated it because it will not work with the multiple monitors I have on my office computer. Also, I wanted an app that was Mac friendly (rather than having to run it exclusively through the Parallels Windows virtualization software that I have on my Mac). I tried Splashtop. It was okay, but not great. The refresh rate lagged, and the screen resolution was fuzzy.

    Next I tried LogMeIn. I was familiar with the product, having used it on a trial basis when it first came out years ago. At that time it was inferior to GoToMyPC, so I moved away from it. My how it has improved. I gave it a hearty test drive this weekend. I appreciate the improved layout of the program. It connects fast. It runs fast and steady. It's smooth. The screen resolution is sharper than any of the competitors. It looks good. It has a multi-screen feature. For me it runs better than the other options I have tried, particularly on my Mac. The Pro version for two computers runs $149 per year. That price is nominal relative to the convenience and utility the service provides. I have made the switch to LogMeIn.

    IAML Is Now The IAFL

    The International Academy of Matrimonial Lawyers was formed in 1986 to improve the practice of law and administration of justice in the area of divorce and family law throughout the world.  In 2015 the IAML Board of Governors agreed that the Academy's name should changed  to the International Academy of Family Lawyers, since this is a more appropriate, up-to-date and accurate description of what we are. The transition has been completed in 2016.

    Evernote Alternatives

    I love Evernote. I use it everyday. Unfortunately there are concerning rumors out there. Funding is down. Revenue is down. Longevity is in question. If you are looking for an alternative, they exist.
